The World Comes to London

Despite the fact that we as Canadians are often associated with snow, we certainly know how to make the most of things come July! Celebrate then with the perfect event to kick off our long hot summer. Sunfest is Canada's Premier Celebration of the Global Arts, held without admission fee in (my city), London, Ontario in beautiful Victoria Park.

Every summer since 1995,
Sunfest has brought together thousands of people of all ages and cultures for four days of exemplary music, dance, crafts and cuisine from around the globe. This unique, high profile event features over 30 top professional world music & dance and jazz ensembles based in Canada and abroad. This summer's line-up ranges from Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 (Nigeria) to Dobet Gnahore (Ivory Coast), and from Grupo Fantasma (USA) to Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwali (Pakistan).

For a complete listing of all artists go here.

Sunfest looks fabulous! And Victoria park is such a lovely and accessible spot for festivals. I can all but hear the steel drums and smell the jerk chicken right now.

Jealous I am!
