Edmonton Reggae Festival Society (ERFS) is proudly non-profit since 2014. We created Edmonton’s original reggae festival.
We are excited to see the love of this joyful Caribbean music growing in our city. More events are springing up every year. The Key ingredient that makes ERFS so special is our unique commitment to the community. It is second only to our drive to share the best music with a growing reggae audience.
Edmonton Reggae Festival society provides a response and systematic approach and strategies to critical needs of Albertan communities to bridge the gap between reggae music and culture in terms of wellness of elders and youth through educational workshops, advocacy, events, sports programs and music festival.
We invite top-notch international reggae artist to our stage. All the while, we nurture local emerging talent.
Our vision brings people together in the sprite of reggae music and culture. We especially love to encourage youth to perform in a professional production, often on the same bill as established artist. We want to help our young performers to find the magic in working together creatively.
As a non-profit organization, we offer an opportunity for you to become involved.

Children will have a fun, safe place to play. Stroll through our vendor area. You’ll also find ERFS merchandise to really get you in the spirit of the day.
Our past performers have included Richie Spice, Marcia Griffiths, Turbulance, Warrior King, Louie Culture, and Souljah fyah. Edmonton’s own Delroy Parr (Singin’ D) charmed audiences with his soulful reggae style.
There is an incredible range of talent to bring together, and we can not wait to show you what is possible.
2021 and 2022, in collaboration with the Alberta Avenuecommunity/neighborhood which is famous for its diversity, support of arts, and warm collaborative spirit we presented “Reggae on the Ave”. The event was meant to be in align with the revitalization of the Alberta Avenue.
The Talented artists in Edmonton are our Champions in action. We encourage their talent. It is our pleasure to showcase their gifts as hard working, skilled entertainers. On July 13, 2019 the Edmonton Reggae Festival Society showcases some of our city’s talent in our presentation of Champions in Action.
