2nd Annual Dallas Reggae Festival

19 Jul

Saturday, July 23rd, marks the 2nd year of the Dallas Reggae Festival! Who said North Texas didn’t have much Carribbean culture? Well, Dallas is no Houston but I bet if you go by Fair Park this Saturday afternoon you may forget that you’re in a state as opposed to an island. The 2nd Annual Reggae Festival will begin at 4:00pm and end at 11:00pm. The doors open at 3:00pm! It will be held at The Bandshell at Fair Park in Dallas.

Richie Spice will hit the stage this year

You can expect live music from Roots Unlimited Band, A-Squad/Anthony Jade, Smurph, Donovan Bulleton, Mark Griffis, Hyron Ferguson, DJ Josh and DJ Cap, Famous Squad Outta Houson, MC Steady Rankin and Sing Kumba. Of course the Reggae music will be accompanied by island cuisine, arts and crafts. You can be sure that two of Dallas’ best island restaurants, Elaine’s Kitchen and Caribbean Grill, will be there selling delicious West Indian food to satisfy you palettes. This event only happens once a year and this is just the 2nd year so make sure not to miss!

Attendees are welcome to bring lawn chairs, blankets and drums but please no coolers, food/drinks, pets, drugs of any kind, large umbrellas or tents. Most importantly bring your positive energy for this grand Reggae festival! Come out and represent your country/island, your heritage and celebrate your love for reggae music. Make it an afternoon of Island fun Saturday July 23rd at The Bandshell.
