The inaugural Pittsburgh Reggae Festival is happening on September 15th, 2018 at 1210 Herron Ave. in the neighborhood of Polish Hill from 11:00 am – 9:00 pm. The Fest is designed to promote reggae music and the surrounding culture here in Pittsburgh showcasing the best in Caribbean cuisine + entertainment. This year’s event will serve as an incubator for the larger vision of a multi-day event with international headliners that will attract attention worldwide in 2019. Performances this year by King Banga, Truth & Rites, Raz Maisha, Wizdom, + more.
As a part of our mission, we feel it is of the highest importance to promote low environmental impact. This is why we have teamed up with Zero Fossil Fuels and Green Mountain Energy towards the goal of making it a zero impact event. Next year’s Fest will take place at the Frick Park Environmental Center. Help us kick off this great event!
