Celebrate the Life and Music of Bob Marley During People’s Festival, Back for Its 22nd Year on July 30
June 16, 2016 | residebpg
Fun fact: Wilmington was the first place Bob Marley lived outside of Jamaica. Still, that's just part of the reason why our town hosts People's Festival every year. The annual festival was really founded as a celebration of Marley's musical contributions, as well as a way to spread the icon's "one love" message of cultural acceptance.
Back for its 22nd year, the 2016 People's Festival will take place on Saturday, July 30. As in year's past, the festival will feature music from both up-and-coming and established musicians; this year will feature performances in reggae and world music by Dumpstaphunk, Alika, Quinto Sol, Brixton Saint, Kooligans, and Richard Raw. Between sets, event-goers can shop globally inspired handicrafts, dance along to the beat of a drum circle, and refuel at the beer garden and international food court. It all goes down at Tubman-Garrett Park overlooking the Christina River, just moments from MKT!
