How "summer fun" is this, taking you to the islands "mon", especially since it's felt like fall since Memorial Day Weekend?  Just in time for June-like temperatures to return, let's have some funky, chill fun with an all-day Reggae Festival on the stunning grounds of Strawbery Banke Museum in Portsmouth.

And when I say all day, I mean all day.  It's Saturday, June 17, from noon until 10pm, with local, regional, and national artists and headliners.  Whether you recognize the names or not, there's something so cool about letting loose, feeling groovy and relaxed, and moving to the music that reggae simply is, filling our souls with such peace.  And of course, are you ready? Reggae drum roll please, because here are the artists and bands taking the stage for your reggae festival Juneteenth celebration.
