This is the first year that 3 Civic Plaza has hosted an exhibit booth at the Surrey Fusion Festival and we hope it isn’t the last. The Surrey Fusion Festival, which takes over Holland Park for 2 days each summer, is a festival that many Surrey residents look forward to every year. The festival, now in its seventh year, won the International Gala Award for best festival in 2013 and for anyone who has attended the event in the past, that’s no surprise. This free festival has something for everyone. No matter your age, you’ll find lots of things to see and do as you walk through the festival grounds.
The festival had almost continuous musical and cultural performances on multiple stages, and there were three dozen food pavilions offering tasty fare from around the world. There was also a kids zone with exhibit booths offering face painting and activities for children as well as a large cooking stage where ‘celebrity’ chefs demonstrated their cooking skills.
While the majority of the festival is about celebrating diversity and all of the different cultures from around the world that make Surrey unique, this year they added a farmers market called ‘Tastes of Surrey’, which highlighted local Surrey farmers and vendors.
Our 3 Civic Plaza pavilion included a photo booth which saw almost 500 groups throughout the weekend. We had a large table of props for guests to use and everyone had a great time dressing up for their photos. To see the photos that we took at our photo booth, go to our 3 Civic Plaza Facebook page here.
Congratulations to our four Instagram contest winners who won $50 gift cards to Home Sense, Nahm Thai Bistro, Central City Brew Pub, and Teavana! Thank you to everyone who participated!
Overall it was a great weekend and we look forward to attending again next year.
