THE ISLAND VIBE COMES TO LOUISVILLE WATER TOWER PARK

The sound of steel drums. The savory smell of Caribbean-inspired food. That’s what makes the Four Roses Bourbon Kentucky Reggae Festival Louisville’s premiere Memorial Day Weekend event. You’ll love the authentic, delicious dishes from the Jamaican Association of Louisville and A Piece of Jamaica. You’ll find unique treasures among the arts, crafts, jewelry and more in the Caribbean Vendor Market. And you won’t be able to stop swaying to the contagious, soul-satisfying sounds of live Reggae music.

Come and escape to the islands – without ever leaving the city.
