April 17-19, 2020: See You At Auditorium Shores For Next Year’s Incredible Austin Reggae Festival!

Thanks to all the locals and out-of-towners who attended the 2019 Austin Reggae Festival. This year’s event was one of our strongest ever!

Stay tuned in the next few weeks as we announce the total funding raised for the Central Texas Food Bank to feed hungry families via the big crowds over these three sunny spring days. In 2018, we raised about $130,000 for this worthy charity — we expect the 2019 total to be even higher.

Until then, please mark your calendar for Friday, April 17 through Sunday, April 19, the dates for the 2020 Austin Reggae Festival. Tickets for the 2020 event will go on sale on Monday, February 3.

Finally, if you lost items at Auditorium Shores at the 2019 event, please check with us at austinreggae at gmail dot com.
