About the event

An all-inclusive culinary and cultural experience! A chance for Central Floridians to immerse themselves into exploring the tastes, sights, sounds and mindsets of another part of the world. Each month (Jan – October*) FusionFest features the cuisine and culture of a different country or culture with a Diversitastic! Dining Experience at a locally owned restaurant, authentically featuring that culture’s food. A special menu is prepared and a program with music, dance, chef and/or culture talks is put together. The dining ticket reserves a seat and serving of the full meal from appetizer to dessert along with the entertainment and enlightenment. Sometimes even a trivia quiz with great prizes. Many of these “mom & pop” restaurants/food vendors are fairly small so we often sell out. (But even our largest Diversitastic! Dining event with 93 seats sold out). Getting your tickets before the last minute, is the best way to ensure tickets are still available. *June features several nights of culinary fusion contestants. For additional tickets guests will receive seven small dishes, each the creation of a different chef who will be combining ingredients, spices or techniques from different continents/cultures to serve up the best fusion dish. They are competing for a $1,000 grand prize, but the audience get to vote for the audience favorite which awards another cash prize to one of the chefs. The chefs will explain their dish when it is served. As always we’ll have a some live entertainment to go with the meal, making the evening a fun and relaxing adventure. *July features a multi-cultural potluck. Tickets are just $5 but require attendees to also bring a food item to share from their culture. SPECIAL “Ate (8) Pack” tickets provide great savings and guaranteed seats (released 2 weeks in advance) for those who love the Diversitastic! Dining experiences.

About the registration

Join us for the celebration and learning of diverse heritages. Each month we choose one restaurant from one of the ten regions of the world and curate an immersive experience for guests to learn more about the rich cultural heritage through food.  We step off the beaten path from big food chains and look for those special community spots that represents the community from their heritage. By introducing new and exciting experiences with the public we open doors of opportunity for economic growth, cultural collaboration and a place for people of diverse backgrounds to break bread and share conversations in a safe, friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We are always looking for that unique taste or something special that may not be on the menu but is something that the general public may not have experienced elsewhere. 
We love to give our guests an amazing experience through entertainment and cultural speakers help to build the ambiance and set the tone for learning, sharing and celebrating making it an affair to remember!
