What’s new for Peoples Festival in 2024?
We are hitting Savannah, GA
with the Reggae Moon Festival – Tribute to Bob Marley
May 10, 11, 12, Port Wentworth, GA
on the One Drop Farm
Savannah, Georgia has been calling to us since 2013. We leaned on family members there, as well as on one dedicated and determined volunteer: Hilton Snead (on our team since the first tribute). He was relentless in spreading the word and looking for solid connections. He is helping Peoples Festival cultivate a “One Love Vibration” in our "hostess city."
In Spring 2023, Brother Hilton’s effort began to take root. We were led to a beautiful private farm in Port Wentworth (lovingly called One Drop Farm). There we met a few dynamic people, one of them being the owner of this amazing place. We shared our Delaware history with them, and our desire to bring the Peoples Festival Tribute to Bob Marley to this area.
We came together like a family and began to build that same day! We decided on May 11, 2024 — for on this day in 1981, Bob Marley made his transition and rode the train to Zion.
This will be a three-day celebration with music, fun and camping.
In February we hosted our inaugural event at North Beach Bar and Grill on Tybee Island, bringing the One Love Revival to over 500 people who gathered from far and wide. So many diverse backgrounds, religions, races, and economic backgrounds — from babies to grandparents —
everyone came to celebrate Bob!
Drumming, dancing, bands and deejays brought the One Love Vibration! What a powerful springboard to the Peoples Festivals Reggae Moon Festival in May!
The Peoples Festival has a mission to foster and promote cultural diversity through music, art and educational programs that promote Unity, One Love, Equal Rights and Justice for All.
We were inspired to do so by our beloved friend and brother, The Honorable Robert Nesta Marley, O.M. Bringing the Rastaman to Savannah, Tybee Island and the surrounding areas is part of this mission! To Jah Be the Glory!
