Through August 1, 2019, FusionFest is issuing a call for performers, artists, vendors and volunteers to register their “Intent to Participate” in the second annual festival that celebrates diversity and inclusion in the Central Florida community.

FusionFest is a two-day celebration of Central Florida's many diverse global cultures. The second annual event takes place Saturday and Sunday, November 30 and December 1, 2019 in downtown Orlando at the Seneff Arts Plaza of the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, including Orange Avenue and City Hall. Admission is free. Performers, artists, vendors and volunteers representing all cultures and heritages are invited to sign up online at FusionFest.org/Join-Us. There also are FusionFest contests with cash prizes, encouraging creative “fusion” projects that meld traditions from multiple regions of the world.

The inaugural FusionFest last year drew approximately 8,000 attendees to downtown Orlando to sample and celebrate music, dance, food, fashion, film, poetry and handcrafted goods from more than 100 heritages represented in Central Florida.

Terry Olson, Orange County Arts & Cultural Affairs, is the festival's architect who has been dubbed “Chief Instigator.” He sums up the festival’s growing appeal, “By showing up to share a smile and your personal heritage, you may discover just how different other people really aren't!”

FusionFest is a project of the Downtown Arts District, with support from Orange County Government and the Orlando Downtown Development Board, at the Dr. Phillips Center.
