WHAT IS THE GLOBAL FUSION FESTIVAL?
Initially produced to celebrate MAC’s 20th Anniversary, the Global Fusion Festival (GFF) has expanded from a two-day event entertaining more than 5,000 people, to a week-long celebration attracting more than 25,000 attendees. The festival holds true to its “global fusion” theme by presenting its 2011 theme CARNIVAL, a perfect combination of Caribbean, Hispanic, African, African-American and Asian cultural performers for visitors and residents to experience, all on one stage.
The annual festival is held on July 16th, 2011 at Penn’s Landing Great Plaza and is a part of PECO’s Summer-long Multicultural Festival Series, representing the LARGEST one-day festival in Philadelphia. Entering its 5th year, the Global Fusion Festival & Week truly embodies Philadelphia’s dynamic cultures and makes entertaining all ages a priority by loading the festival grounds from noon to 8pm with unforgettable national award-winning talent, cultural dance performances, ethnic foods, a children’s pavilion, and crafts and giveaways…all for FREE. Our 2011 artists represent the who’s-who in entertainment. From international Bachata performers and hands-clapping gospel artists, pop and rock bands, to award-winning R&B soloists and cultural performers, our line-up will excite the rhythms within your soul.
