Our Mission

Ithaca Reggae Fest is dedicated to the protection of Cayuga Lake through a vibrant celebration of Ithaca’s legendary reggae community and its history. With support from over 3,500 festival attendees and all of our sponsors in 2017, the Friends of Cayuga Lake made a $7,500 donation to support the purchase of a new boat for the Cayuga Lake Floating Classroom, which is now Discover Cayuga Lake. They’re fostering future stewards of Cayuga Lake by providing hands-on learning opportunities in the interest of sustaining our Finger Lakes waterways for future generations. #Reggae4Cayuga

Information

In 2017 our Education Village raised awareness and celebrated the local water protector organizations designing innovations to protect and restore Cayuga Lake. In 2018 we are continuing the conversation in the Education Village by expanding the community vibrations with several sister villages including a Wellness Village, International Food Village, Youth Village and a special History Exhibit about Ithaca’s Legendary Reggae Scene. Stay tuned for more details coming soon. Onelove!
