|ReggaeFest Postponed for 2018|
After 14 amazing years of bringing the best of Reggae to Calgary, the Board of Directors of the Calgary Reggae Festival Society has decided to postpone Calgary ReggaeFest for 2018.
Festival co-founder and producer Leo Cripps says plans are to take the next year to assess and re-imagine the event.
The festival, usually held the third weekend in August, has consistently introduced Calgarians to a very diverse collection of Reggae performers from Canada and around the world.
The festival will return in 2019.

It will make us very sad if you do, and perhaps your removal will be the one the makes us decide this no longer worth doing at all, and all the information we provide will go away forever and musicians will sit home alone at night and cry because they have no one to play for because no one knows about their shows.
