2017 Austin Reggae Festival Dates: April 14-16

Dates for the 2017 Austin Reggae Festival are Friday, April 14 through Sunday, April 16. Taking place at Auditorium Shores, next year’s event will also benefit the Capital Area Food Bank.

While we can’t promise sunny skies next spring, we can say that two consecutive years of wet conditions give us faith that 2017 will return to the warm / dry conditions that have typically prevailed at the Austin Reggae Festival.

Stay tuned to this website for more information on the 2017 event as it is released.

As always, if you have questions related to the Austin Reggae Festival (including questions related to the Sunday, April 17 cancellation), then please connect with us at austinreggaefest@gmail.com.

Sunday, April 17 Cancelled at Austin Reggae Fest

Heavy rain as well as continued stormy weather unfortunately necessitate the cancellation of the Sunday, April 17 show at the Austin Reggae Festival. We are as disappointed as you are about this cancellation. However, with thunder and lightning forecast for most of the day in Austin, our number one priority remains the safety of attendees, vendors and staff.

Today’s cancellation of the Austin Reggae Festival follows the weather-related cancellation of several other Austin events, including the Sunday portion of the MS 150 Bicycle Ride and the Texas Rowing Championships.

For questions about the Sunday, April 17 cancellation (including refund information), please contact us at austinreggaefest@gmail.com. We will respond to your email as quickly as possible.

Lastly, thanks to all the reggae fans from around the nation and around the world who attended the Friday and Saturday portions of this year’s event.

As a reminder, proceeds from the Austin Reggae Festival benefit the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas. Over the last decade, the event has raised more than $1 million in funds to help this worthy charity feed hungry families in Central Texas. That said, rain problems at this year’s event will severely impact CAFB donations over the next several months.
