Tips and Advice

Below are some tips and advice to help you make the most of your time at the Surrey Fusion Festival.

  • TIP #1: If you have young children, go in the afternoon. Children’s storytelling and entertainment is between around 11:30 am and 5 pm each day and that’s when the place is full of families. Evenings are when the place gets really crowded, especially with younger adults (as well as older ones).
  • TIP #2: Take public transit! There isn’t enough parking in the area for tens of thousands of people, and the King George SkyTrain station is just across the street! If you stay until the very end of the day, however, like until the last song at the evening’s final concert, be prepared for long lineups at the station.
  • TIP #3: If you do plan to drive, go early if you want to find parking. Or park somewhere close to a SkyTrain station further down the line and then take transit for the last little bit there.
