Time to party, Warren: Fusion Fest is Saturday


It rained on and off and the wind howled in off the Warren River, but last year's Fusion Fest at the Blount Clam Shack on Water Street drew hundreds anyway. With weather looking good for the weekend, organizers are hoping for even more.

Fusion Fest is an annual fund-raiser for the Fusionworks Dance Company. It's also a showcase of artists on Warren's 75 or Less Records, and a giant party complete with a beer garden and lots of good food. Now in its fifth year, the festival starts at noon Saturday and runs until 7 p.m. There will be a long list of musical acts including Mark Cutler, Galvanize, Allysen Callery, Jacob Haller, Lloyd's Llamas, Paul Rocha, Space Face, Haunt the House, Sick Pills and Six Star General. There will be a local beer garden with brews from Union Station, Trinity Brewhouse, Narragansett, Cisco Brewers, the Bucket Brewery and the Berkshire Brewing Company. The Blount Clam Shack will serve food, and there will be a host of food trucks as well with French, Mexican, Southwest and other fare.

It's all free.
