Bournemouth Reggae Weekend 26th-28th July 2024

Bournemouth Reggae Weekender is Bournemouth’s #1 Reggae in the park event

Bournemouth Reggae Weekender is an independently run  3-day unique occasion to celebrate the diverse African-Caribbean culture and heritage in Bournemouth through reggae music with a full range of entertainment and traditional activities that supports creative arts and performing artists through music, poetry, storytelling, and dance workshops. 

The event also hosts an array of artisan traders, and craft stands including traditional wooden art, African clothing and kente designs. The festival is a not-for-profit venture run by a Non-Profit Afro*disiac Live Radio

Embark on a remarkable journey with our event, initially slated for a July 2019 launch but temporarily deferred based on advice from Local Authorities due to an overwhelming response. Determined to make it a reality, we downsized and took a financial hit, rescheduling for July 4th-5th, 2020. However, the global pandemic, COVID-19, threw a curveball, leading to a government-mandated ban on outdoor events and a subsequent postponement to July 2021.

Finally, in July 2021, our event saw the light of day, drawing in 5000 attendees and receiving an official inauguration by the esteemed mayor of Bournemouth. The event’s success was further amplified by the proud sponsorship of Dorset Police – Positive Action. Join us in celebrating resilience, community, and the triumphant spirit that defines our event’s extraordinary journey!
