By its simplest definition, a Rastagarian is a Calgarian who shares the values of Caribbean culture and, specifically, Reggae music.
It’s not a religious movement, it’s not social commentary, and it’s not scary. Rastagarians are the youthful Calgarians of all ages, shapes, sizes and colours who celebrate our city’s cultural, social and aesthetic revitalization.
So when you’re asked “Are you a Rastagarian?” say “Yes!” It’s an invitation to ReggaeFest. Moreover, it’s an invitation to participate in the things that help make Calgary a more progressive, culturally rich experience. No strings attached – just food, fun, great music and new experiences.
