Join us for good reggae music, rum cocktails and Caribbean food at the 2nd Annual Rum and Reggae Festival.
2nd Annual Rum and Reggae Festival
Join us once again for a day infused with the rhythms of reggae and the spirit of the Caribbean at the 2nd Annual Rum and Reggae Festival! Presented by the Caribbean American Passport News Magazine, this celebration of culture, music, and flavor will take place at the Apopka Amphitheater in Apopka, FL, on Saturday, November 4th.
After the resounding success of our inaugural event, which was moved to November due to weather concerns and subsequently found its rightful place as a much-anticipated November Caribbean fixture, this year promises even more excitement. Although artist announcements are still pending, if last year is any indication, attendees can expect an incredible lineup of reggae acts and live bands.
Last year, we celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Caribbean Sunshine Bakery with electrifying performances by reggae legends such as Freddie McGregor, Ras Shiloh, Lt. Stitchie, and many others.
Caribbean Sunshine Bakery, a family-owned establishment since 1992, was also honored for its continuous commitment to the Caribbean Diaspora in Orlando, expanding from one location to three and consistently delivering quality products with premium ingredients.
This year’s Rum and Reggae Festival will again be the go-to destination to immerse yourself in the Caribbean’s illustrious rum heritage, mouth-watering food, and vibrant culture. Attendees are encouraged to come early, starting at 2 pm, to experience everything the festival has to offer. Engage with various vendors, savor samples at the Rum Shop, snap photos at the Orlando Carnival photo zone, engage in a game of dominoes, or simply savor the tantalizing food offerings with reggae vibes setting the ambiance. The main concert will kick off at 6 pm, delivering back-to-back reggae acts live on stage until 10 pm.
Delight in authentic Caribbean dishes – from jerk chicken, corn soup, and rice & peas to curry goat and chicken curry, the flavors are bound to transport you straight to the islands.
For families, it’s an outing not to be missed! Children under 10 enjoy free admission. So, sit out on the lawns of the Apopka Amphitheater, indulge in rum tasting sessions, and let the music carry you away.
