Last call goes out for Fusion Festival vendors
The Downtown Kelowna Association has put out a final call for all vendors, artisans, crafters and food vendors to apply to participate in the Kelowna Fusion Festival taking place Aug. 13.
The Kelowna Fusion Festival, formerly known as the Mardi Gras Street Festival, will be a celebration of local food, music and culture that will offer a variety of exhibits and entertainment for all ages.
The City’s downtown parks will be activated for the day with programming ranging from Kerry Park through Stuart Park.
The site will open to upwards of 10,000 spectators made up of families, friends, residents and travelers alike who will gather together downtown to enjoy live entertainment, culture, activities and vendors from across the Okanagan Valley.
Vendor applications have been streaming in as excitement builds around Kelowna Fusion Festival’s inaugural year.
Spaces are filling up quickly and Peggy Athans, Downtown Kelowna Association executive director, couldn’t be more thrilled. “The Downtown Kelowna Association is very proud to have so much interest from local vendors, artisans and performers for the first year of the Kelowna Fusion Festival,” Athans said.
“We are very excited to bring our community together to celebrate in August and we look forward to growing the festival each year.”
The deadline for Kelowna Fusion Festival vendor and performer submissions is July 8.
Due to the Canada Post lockout last week, the Downtown Kelowna Association also wants to reassure vendors that applications can still be emailed, faxed, or dropped off in person to the office. Visit www.downtownkelowna.com for office contact information.
The full Kelowna Fusion Festival line up and schedule is set to be announced on Friday, July 15.
