Oklahoma City's Bricktown Reggae Fest

The Bricktown Reggae Festival, which began in Oklahoma City in 1995, is held annually in late July/early August and features many of the area's best reggae musicians performing live during the two-day festival as well as Caribbean/Jamaican food, drinks, and giveaways. Reggae musicians who performed at previous Bricktown Reggae Festivals include Bum Lucky, The Suspects, One Love Uprising, Preston Hall, Josh Heinrichs, and Skillinjah. It's free, and it takes place every year in Bricktown under tents at the corner of Reno and Oklahoma avenues near Bricktown Brewery.


Take your own lawn chairs or blankets if you'd rather not stand. The gates open at 4:30 p.m. each day, and the last act ends at midnight. 

The festival was canceled for 2017 because of street construction in the area. Check the festival's Facebook page for information about future festivals.

While lawn chairs and blankets are encouraged, you may not bring in food and drinks. You also cannot bring your pet. Professional video or camera equipment and weapons are prohibited in the festival area.
