Wellness Village

Wellness Village is a space to enjoy wellness activities throughout the day under the natural shade of beautiful willow trees in Stewart Park. Your well being at the festival is important to us and we encourage you to take a break during the day to experience a yoga class, a meditation, a massage, or a delicious conversation with friends and family. Enjoy the day!


Youth Village

Youth Village is created by the community for the community. Please bring your junior reggae fans to the festival and enjoy some of our many engaging activities for youth. We’ll have festival crafts, face painting, lawn games, bubble play, and more. Yoga and percussion games will happen throughout the day. And if you need a place to unwind with your littles, we’ll have a dedicated area with a cozy book nook, simple toys, and a nursing area for mamas. All youth under 16 are FREE at the festival!
