 Bell Biv DeVoe and Bobby Valentino, Headliners for Global Fusion Festival

Philadelphia, PA (BlackNews.com) - Authentic cultural music, ethnic food and dance performances, vendors, and children's activities will be the focal point of Global Fusion Festival Week, Monday, July 13 - Saturday, July 18, 2009. Highlighting this five day event will be the Global Fusion Festival, featuring a FREE Concert, Saturday, July 18, noon to 8 p.m. at the Great Plaza at Penn's Landing. Produced by The Philadelphia Multicultural Affairs Congress (MAC), a division of the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau, Global Fusion Festival is part of PECO's Multicultural Festival Series at Penn's Landing. This multicultural summer event will offer a diversity of entertainment for the entire family.

In its 3rd year, the festival-themed "Global Fusion" will feature national recording artists and regional and local acts representing Philadelphia's African Diaspora, Hispanic, Caribbean, and Asian cultures. In addition to the national headliners and ethnic dance performances, the festival will include international foods, multicultural vendors, giveaways, and educational programs for participants of all ages.

"We are excited to produce the 3rd Annual Global Fusion Festival," states MAC executive director Tanya Hall. "The festival supports our efforts in presenting our City as a top multicultural destination."

Highly acclaimed Old School legends, Bell Biv DeVoe, R&B soloist Bobby Valentino, Merengue great Oro Solido, Merengue/Hip-hop award winner Amarfis y la banda de Atakke, and Gospel sensation James Fortune are headliners for this year's Global Fusion Festival.

What started in 2007, as a two-day event attracting more than 5,000 people, has expanded this year under the Global Fusion name to encompass an entire week-long celebration showcasing Philadelphia's fusion of diversity and talent with various events, fusion themed restaurant and drink discounts, and performances for an expected 20,000-25,000 people.

MAC maximizes opportunities for the region by promoting Philadelphia as an ethnically diverse visitor destination, encouraging multicultural business and social responsibility that contributes to and benefits from the varying multicultural communities that enhance our region's hospitality and tourism industry.
