Band shown here: Dem Reggae Bon
Summer-starved fans continue to make our festival the predominant event in the Louisville area on Memorial Day weekend. It is the first event of the Water Tower Music Series and is designed to bring a truly Caribbean atmosphere to Louisville's backyard, incorporating Jamaican culture and the flavor of the islands through music, ethnic food and the Caribbean Market.
The Jamaican Association of Louisville, along with other vendors, provide flavorful dishes of Jamaica and the Caribbean-from spicy meat dishes to grilled chicken.
Vendors from all over the United States reserve booth space in the Caribbean Market, which has grown each year since 2003. From experienced treasure seeker to the casual collector, you will find everything under the Island sun, including arts, crafts, jewelry, beads and more. Our Caribbean market has become a popular festival attraction for the weekend.
All Kentucky Reggae Festival activities are surrounded by the contagious and soul-satisfying rhythms of live, authentic reggae music.
