With every can of food you donate to the festival, together we can feed the homeless and others in need.
This is the spirit of the 9 Mile Music Festival.
This makes our reggae music festival more than just a concert. It’s about doing good and spreading love. That’s how it started, as a labor of love pioneered by Bob Marley’s mother, Cedella Marley Booker. It has been held annually in Miami, Florida for the past 22 years, from its days as the “Marley Fest” to “The Caribbean Music Festival.”
With your help, the festival has collected more than three million canned goods since its start in 1993. We hope to increase this amount with the upcoming festival – and more to come. Four canned goods are required for entry to the festival, along with buying an admission ticket. The canned goods are distributed to shelters in Miami, a way for all of us to give back to the community.
We want to thank you for your support and donations.
Enjoy the festival, and may Jah bless you – and may the spirit of The Legend play a reggae beat in your hearts forever.
This year’s Charity:
Curley’s House of Style helps the community – our community and yours – by providing food and clothing to the needy in the inner city of Miami.
Their mission is to improve the quality of life of low-to-moderate income individuals and families, the elderly, the homebound, the abused, HIV/AIDS infected, youth and youth-at-risk. How? They do this by providing bulk food product to these needy residents of Liberty-Model City, and by serving as a neighborhood outreach ministry.
