General information

Vermont Reggae Festival has been a Vermont tradition for more than twenty years. Many Vermonters have fond memories from this weekend, making it a summer staple, while other attendees will be experiencing the festival for the first time. The fest will continue to provide a family-friendly place to revel in the spirit of music, inspiration, and celebration. Yes, it is wonderful that Vermont has its own reggae festival. We couldn't find a place in Vermont this year that we could rent. Rochester, NH will be a wonderful locale this year. In order to make this possible, it is important for everyone involved to be aware of the details. Solid relationships and smooth coordination are goals. If you ever have any questions in regards to the festival, the website is www.vermontreggaefestival.com and the contact email address is [email protected] Please feel free to contact us anytime. The website has more detailed information about all of this: the history, the entertainers, ticket info, application forms, etc. The website is in a somewhat stage of construction, so apologies for that. New ideas and creativity can occur in surprising ways and the more original minds involved the better. Musicians, performance artists, and visual artists will be sharing their creativity throughout the weekend. There is ample space for vendors to sell food, art, clothing, etc. The local community will be involved as much as possible. Volunteers can share their time, which is also appreciated. I am energized to be planning Vermont Reggae Rock Festival once again. You are all invited to attend and enjoy the music. If you want to participate in any way, feel free please! Hope to see you there.
