Lake Anne is welcoming a new festival on Sept. 10 at the plaza (1609 Washington Plaza North) in Reston.
The first annual Reggae at the Lake Festival will feature international reggae bands, food, crafts and family activities.
Ramon Pardo — a local realtor with Terra Properties and member of the Lake Anne Washington Plaza Merchants Association (LAWPMA) — created the festival after Culture Reggae Band, an internationally known band, performed at his wedding in Jamaica.
“Their performance just made the day even more magical for them,” the association said in a statement to FFXnow. “He wanted to bring some of that magic to Lake Anne because of his love for the Plaza and its balance of nature and architecture, residents and businesses, and to give back to the community. He proposed the idea of a reggae festival and led a small committee of LAWPA members to make sure it happened.”
The event will run from 1-9 p.m.:
- 1 p.m. — Proverbs Reggae Band
- 2:30 p.m. — Eclipse International Band
- 4 p.m. — Ras Lido & the Regg’Go Band
- 5:30 p.m. — Kurlou Reggae All-Stars
- 7 p.m. — Culture featuring Kenyatta Hill
The festival will take place at the waterfront of the plaza and is free for all. If needed, a rain date will be announced at a later point.
“We feel this is a perfect festival for Lake Anne because its residents and business owners are so diverse with many ethnicities and cultures melding into one community,” LAWPMA said. “Music and dance brings people together, and we are happy to provide opportunities to make that happen.”
