The 9th Annual Northwest World Reggae Festival (“NWWRF”) is back at Bob’s Ranch, near Marcola, Oregon for the sixth time. Family friendly and sustainable, NWWRF welcomes conscious musical artists from Jamaica, South Africa, England, Ghana, Guyana, Zimbabwe, Israel and across America performing ROOTS, ROCK, REGGAE! Check out the lineup at

Experience the jubilation and positive energy of this growing community! The livity doesn’t stop with the music. Forget about the world outside while participating in diverse activities such as sunrise yoga, African dance classes, musical performances for and by the youth, visual arts displays, live painting and a growing community of the sustainable spirit. Learn about local non­profit organizations, fair trade and sustainable businesses and then refuel with a variety of delicious organic foods while you explore the fair trade crafts from more than 50 vendors from all around the World.

NWWRF is a family friendly festival. Youth 14 and under are admitted free. Youth Zone, in the Oak Grove, provides a safe environment with a shady arts and crafts area. Saturday and Sunday morning starting at 10 AM, we will have youth entertainment by Sara Tone, Newell Briggs, Fairy Funk Mother and members of the various drum and dance troupes performing on our stages. They encourage the youth to bring instruments and join them in the performances in this up close and personal setting under the old growth trees.

NWWRF encourages sustainability. They encourage you to bring reusable containers to enjoy the natural cascade spring water, available for free all around the site. All recycling is done at the Info and Recycling centers ­ making sure they separated everything they can from the waste stream. Bio­diesel fuel powers the stage, site and trucks. All food waste is composted and wind power is used at the office. They strives to use the most sustainably made paper and other products available. All food booths and the staff/performer kitchen are organic and as local as possible. Refundable bottles and cans are donated to the Marcola Boy Scout chapter. Through In Ticketing, a tree has been planted for each ticket sold, totalling over 18,000 trees over the past six years.

NWWRF’s success is due to the creative energy, dedication, skills and talents of organizers, staff, volunteers, sponsors, vendors and performers. With the help of major community participation, this annual event continues to inspire the masses to return year after year. Join the festivities and enter a world of positive ­ conscious culture that will re­charge your mind, body and soul

    My fiance just started at the Seattle art institute in Seattle and its been very hard for us between work and school to travel and find time to spend together. He works 50+ hours on top of school courses and I know its stressful 24/7 for him and this would be a rare chanced for us to experience something we’re both passionate about together ….

    Because I have been away from my family for 1 year, and reggae reminds of my friends and family back home in Hawaii. Reggae gets me through the day with positive vibrations. It makes me live a positive life. I’m broke and really want to take my girlfriend to this.
