Dot Com Fusion Fest

Surrey Fusion Festival

After Dot Com Pho at Pho Lan Restaurant, which was attended by only 7 people because of a Dot Com split, We headed across the Alex Fraser bridge and into city of Surrey for the first ever Dot Com Fusion Festival.

The Surrey Fusion Festival is Surrey’s largest 3-day multicultural celebration with 40 international pavilions celebrating music, food and culture. This is the event’s first year and it looks like a big hit.

The festival is held at the new Holland Park located at King George Highway and Old Yale Road. This is the largest multicultural event in Surrey’s history as over 60,000 people are projected to attend this free outdoor festival.

Unlike the United States, which tries to be a melting pot, Canada celebrates its diversity. The Surrey Fusion Festival brings together many distinct cultural heritages represented by ethnic and community groups hosting pavilions to present the music, food, costume and dance of their country of origin. Fusion Festival started yesterday and goes until tomorrow. It’s worth checking out.

  1. I was born in Canada and truly love its diversity, even though I now call SoCal home, but John… no pandas in that video ??

    1. John Chow says:

      I think the pandas were hiding.

        1. How do the pandas manage to camouflage themselves? 😯

      1. mr nice guy says:

        Hahaha Pandas aren’t hiding John. They are nowhere to be found in Canada. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    2. Why do you talk about Panda? Whether it discussing about Surrey Fusion Festival?

      1. I guess you don’t know the story of John and pandas.

  2. Good stuff, as a Canadian I appreciate these kind of things. I do want to move to Cali (for silicon valley) but hey I still love my Canadian roots.

    Looks like a gay ‘ol time. πŸ˜‰

    I would have had to drink alot to stay there longer than an hour. LoL unless my little girl was old enough to enjoy it.

      In the South (note the capped “S”) 😎 we’d say he had a grand ole time.

  4. So that’s how you’re so tall John…STILTS right?

  5. fas says:

    Looks good, but was there a circus in there πŸ™„

  6. G says:

    Multi-cultural. Cool.

  7. The U.S. tends to go overboard in the area of celebrating diversity. Christmas isn’t Christmas anymore…its “The Holidays”, so as not to exclude anyone. People in the United States are so worried about offending one another, that suggesting us as anything other than “diverse” is offensive in itself….

  11. You can be a melting pot and still celebrate diversity.

  12. Rick Vaughn says:

    Send your hot chicks down to the US and we will trade you some people out of our “melting pot”.

  13. offtopic question: John, what wordpress plugin do you use for ‘stripe ad’?

    1. John Chow says:

    That line just gets me thinking… Stay tuned next week, when it’s Dot Com Civil War! Who will come out on top? Who will survive? Who will eat the last cocktail shrimp.

    OMG. They could do a video game. John Chow and the Pandas of Dot Com Doom! Oh, that gives me an idea…

  20. Zak Show says:

  23. Did Chevron pay to advertise on your blog?

  25. Looks fun
    Hey I am a new visitor to your site and I love it. I subscribed to the RSS feed. Looking forward to reading more. I love your blog

      Ouch. You made a typo in your URL.

  26. John, Nice post! I enjoy the ‘diversity’ of your post’s. It shows that you have wide ranging interests, and care about more than just making money. Well done! Respectfully, Nicholas Chase – future Super Affiliate http://www.donotreadthisblogunless.blogspot.com

    cool pics + video. LOVE THE PARK 😎

    I wish pingo or one of its affiliate partners had a booth to giveaway free phone cards. These type of ethnic festivals are worth renting a booth at. Sometimes going offline with your marketing efforts, can give your affiliate website a real sales lift.
