Miami Reggae Festival is a positive celebration highlighting the power of word, sound and art uniting us all as members of one human family. Join us as we celebrate the state and quality of being one.
The daylong family-oriented festival will be composed of many elements but all share in a single idea: a state of being unified as one. As Bob Marley so humbly said, “one love, one aim, one destiny.”
Families will be able to enjoy live performances of these artists from around the world reflective of our landscape, an artisan village of fine arts and visual arts, a food village, Artecology Experience that includes workshops with interactive and educational games for kids about recycling, reusing and reducing, AEROGA ® Yoga in the Park, Bike Valet, Promoting Environment, Health & Nutrition, Community Activism, Art Programs, Sustainability & Consciousness Workshops, Composting, Agriculture, Holistic & Natural Sciences, Poi & Hula Hoop Workshop, Drum Circle, Dance & Movement, Live Painting, Recycling Stations, Interactive Games, Massages, Meditation, Face & Body Painting, and more.
The festival aims to inspire people to give of themselves to help make the world a better place in which to live. “We’re accomplishing this task by spreading art, culture and music while offering relief and humanitarian aid.” “Miami Reggae Festival is made possible with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners.”
