23,000 Pounds of Food for CAFB!

Congratulations to everyone who attended the 2006 Austin Reggae Festival. With your generous help and support, we raised 23,638 pounds of food for the Capital Area Food Bank. This figure amounts to more than 140,000 meals for hungry families in Central Texas. Over its 13 year history, the Austin Reggae Festival has raised more than 300,000 pounds of food for this very worthy charity. What a great testimony to the healing power of positive music!


Event Followup: Lost and Found

Thanks to all the folks who braved the warm weather this weekend to support the Austin Reggae Festival. We have quite a few items in the "lost and found" bin. If you are missing something and think that you misplaced it Saturday and Sunday, contact Hugh for information on recovery.


Warm Weather This Weekend!

The 2006 Austin Reggae Festival begins at noon on Saturday, April 15. Warm temperatures are forecast for Austin this weekend (with highs in the upper 80s). Be sure to wear sunscreen and drink plenty of fluids. Yes, each patron is allowed to bring in one container of sealed water for personal usage. Beverages will also be available from the various vendors (and if you forget cash, there will be an ATM). Explore this website for more info on bands, parking and what to bring to the event.

Doors open at noon and the event ends at 10:00 pm.


What to Bring, What Not to Bring

These items are allowed at the Austin Reggae Festival: blankets, lawn chairs, tents, one sealed container of water for personal usage, ice chests filled with ice only (but not drinks), leashed and well-behaved dogs.

In addition to the $7.00 entry fee and two cans of food for the Capital Area Food Bank, we also encourage you to bring sunscreen (to protect against the warm weather) and extra cash (to purchase food, drink, plus arts and crafts from the scores of vendors). If you forget these items, there will be an ATM on site -- and sunscreen is sold at the soda booth on the east side of the venue.

These items are definitely NOT allowed at the Austin Reggae Festival: food for personal consumption, drinks, pit bulls and other aggressive dogs, unfriendly attitudes.
