Guess what? One of the city’s premier outdoor celebrations of live music, street food and culture is back in 2022 and you can be a part of it.

FUSION22 multicultural street festival is returning to the spectacular Victory Memorial Gardens on Saturday 9 April 2022.

Council and cultural partners, the Multicultural Council of Wagga Wagga are inviting Expressions of Interest from local performers and food & drink vendors to entertain and feed the festival crowds.

For event information or to submit an Expression of Interest:

Council’s Director Community Janice Summerhayes said FUSION22 is expected to be well supported by locals and draw in crowds from across the Riverina region this autumn.

“Planning is well underway and we’re curating a diverse line-up of music and entertainment to be announced closer to the event,” Ms Summerhayes said.

“Along with the live music, the street food precinct is one of the most popular parts of FUSION. Festival goers will be able to feast on authentic and modern street style food from around the globe.
