The 33rd Reggae on the River presented as a fundraiser for the non-profit Mateel Community Center, takes place August 3-6th at French’s Camp in southern Humboldt county, 10 miles south of Garberville along the banks of the Eel river. After the epic rainfall this past winter, the river is in great health and the rainwater catchment installed in 2016 makes Reggae the first water neutral/positive event of its kind. During the festival, once the sun canopy is lifted on stage, 16×9 foot digital display walls and video projections enhance the sound experience for audience members. Internal bike and van shuttles are available onsite to move gear and festival goers to and from the festival bowl to campsites and late night activities. For campers, the festival allows the opportunity to work together toward global community building, creating connections that are local and global. Bring a new or used tool for Tools For Change a Mateel Community Center program that shares tools with villages in Burkina Faso. All of the food booths at the festival partner with non-profit organizations to donate a portion of their proceeds. To purchase 3 or 4 tickets, Premier camping and Ambassador passes which donate 10% towards global charities, visit website or call 707-923-3368.
