Produced by Big Ship Music Inc., the LBRMJFF, was created as the answer to the call for an all-inclusive, multi-cultural Caribbean and Latin American food festival in Southern California. “This unique festival will bring together family, friends and fans along with popular artists from the Caribbean diaspora creating a perfect fusion of music, culinary arts and culture where all are welcome. Join us on the BIG LAWN to enjoy this one-of-a-kind experience,” says Freddie McGregor – Event Co-creator.
During this unique festival, visitors will enjoy the pulsating rhythms of Reggae & Latin music, while sampling delicious cuisine, arts/crafts, and enjoyable family fun. The popularity of a cultural festival of this kind has grown over the years and spread across the USA – now it’s time for Long Beach. A large tourism attraction, increasing visitation and commerce, this celebratory element adds to the continued efforts of community development and cultural exchange within Southern California, while re-establishing the roots of Caribbean music. Connecting a universal language through rhythm, the vast appeal of Caribbean/Latin music and its impact has become the foundation of music history for many.
World A Reggae is proud to be a sponsor of this Unique event.
