Board of Directors – a short history

In October of 2003, six Calgarians came together with the same vision – to increase the awareness of Reggae Music in Western Canada and to provide an avenue where this music can be heard. The Calgary Reggae Festival Society (CRFS) was formed. CRFS is set on a mission to promote local, regional and national awareness of Reggae Music in Canada.

The six Founding Members had a very strong connection to Reggae music and event planning. The experiences of this group were far reaching – from Reggae music DJ’s, broadcasters, promoters and musicians to experienced event planners. This team endeavoured to educate the general public about the conscious, unifying power of Reggae music.
