On Sunday, 10. April between 11am – 5pm Inverleith Park will host the Ecofusion festival! Ecofusion is a multi cultural environmental and family-friendly festival which aims to encourage more people to enjoy the outdoors.
The event is hosted within 5 colourful Indian marquees, and provides a space for a wide range of environmental and multi cultural community-based organisations to stimulate interest in Scotland’s Outdoors through hands on fun activities such as scaling a climbing tower, having a go at a cycling obstacle course, making seed bombs and meeting the world’s fastest bird of prey, the peregrine falcon. Multi-cultural organisations will be giving visitors the chance to take part in a wide range of nature-related craft activities from around the world, such as Nepalese plate making, Chinese knotting, Japanese origami and henna painting.
Ecofusion provides a multi-cultural “fusion” of entertainment with music by Sambasene and Diwan, dancing by the Nepalese Scotland Association, story telling and drumming workshops. And the acclaimed Mosque Kitchen will be tempting visitors with some delicious dishes from India and Pakistan.
You will also have the chance to catch us for a chat about your next holidays and information on travel to the Himalaya! Don’t miss this event, we certainly won’t!
