Surrey Fusion Festival: Indulge in epic eats from around the world

Jul 14 2022, 8:32 pm

The Lower Mainland is known for its multiculturalism – a quality that is especially evident in the incredible variety of cuisine we’re able to enjoy.

The Surrey Fusion Festival returns for its 15th year this summer, with a huge two-day event celebrating this multiculturalism through food, heritage displays, and music.

Running on Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24, Surrey Fusion Festival’s 2022 theme of “CommUNITY” will be on full display at over 40 cultural pavilions.

Explore them all to discover traditions from around the world that bring people together and build bridges between cultures.

Thirty of these pavilions will also be dishing up incredible cuisine from their respective cultures, giving festival-goers a chance to try a bit of what makes Surrey and the Lower Mainland so delicious – and trust us, you’re going to want to come hungry.

From pad thai to jerk wings, mandazi to crepes, here is everything you can eat from each of the country-specific pavilions this year.
