Calgary to experience a taste of Reggae culture

June 19, 2017 by  

This summer, Calgary will be moving to a reggae beat during a festival that will celebrate this style of music and culture.

The city will be playing host to ReggaeFest, which will be a family friendly event. Performers will be heading to the city from across the country and around the world, and it has continued to be a popular function since it was first started 13 years ago.

There will be live musical performances, activities to enjoy, vendors, food, and much more. A local printer will be able to work with businesses during the festival to provide branded labels and other packaging supplies for the items they will be selling.

Children will be able to spend time in a zone set up just for them. They can have their faces painted, spend time in the bounce house, make a craft, play games or just relax with a book.

Older guests will be able to socialize over a drink in the Village Brewery beer garden, which will only be open to those who are aged 18 and older. Organizers also noted that dancing to the music is highly encouraged, wherever the festival-goer may be during the event.

ReggaeFest will be coming to the city’s Shaw Millennium Park on August 18th and 19th. Tickets, sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are all available, and further details can be found on its website.
