July 1 is recognized as International Reggae Day. This is 24 hours of celebration for reggae culture and its influence on Jamaican music. This event has a global media reach and is hosted in Kingston.
The objective is to celebrate the best of Jamaican creativity and its worldwide impact using the power of music, media and communication technology to unite nations.
Celebrate International Reggae Day in your own way, by organising your own event in homage to the impact that Reggae music has. You could even have your own Reggae themed fundraiser and create a charitable event for the charity of your choice, or just celebrate by listening to a few of your favourite Reggae tunes. Enjoy!
