Craft and Cuisine

At its core, the JazzReggae Festival is a celebration of culture. JazzReggae showcases the diversity of the Los Angeles community by hand-picking an array of unique local eateries and craft vendors. We see it as our duty to provide you with only the best and most diversified choices in cuisine! This year we are excited for you to indulge in Jamaican, Ethiopian, and Thai foods - to name only but a few options offered. Once your tastebuds have been dazzled, head on over to our craft booths where you'll find clothing, accessories, original artwork, and handmade products amongst a variety of eclectic works! We at JazzReggae have searched long and hard to deliver only the most distinct, hidden gems to you and we are absolutely delighted to share and experience them with you.

SUSTAINABILITY


JazzReggae’s commitment to sustainability draws national recognition from VH1 and DoSomething.org as one of the top 4 most sustainable music festivals.

Water Bottles

In efforts to put on a sustainable festival conscious of its environmental impact, JazzReggae will offer free water refilling stations with Event Water solutions. Event Water partners with festivals and large events all over the US and Canada to provide guests with free, unlimited, filtered drinking water. Bringing water refilling stations to JazzReggae was a crucial step in supplementing our sustainability efforts. Last year, we were able to dramatically divert our plastic bottle waste by providing attendees with more than 4,000 water refills over the course of the two-day festival. This year, we aim to raise this count and promote awareness of sustainable living practices. Keep an eye out for two snazzy water refilling stations on the festival grounds. If you forget to bring your own reusable water bottle, custom JazzReggae bottles will be sold at our merchandise tent! 

Food Vendors

JazzReggae food vendors contribute to the festival’s sustainable efforts by working towards a zero-waste goal. Our sustainability team works to ensure that food vendors avoid plastic bottles and sauce packets, and use recyclable and compostable cutlery, plates, and cups. Waste, recycling, and composting bins will be located throughout the festival grounds to ensure a minimal waste footprint. JazzReggae is also partnering with Biotane Fuels to pick up leftover cooking oil to convert to biodiesel. 

Global Inheritance

Global Inheritance is a unique nonprofit organization that is involved with hundreds of events around the country, using creative, cause-based projects to convey the importance of sustainability and social action.

[We] focus on the power of interactivity to communicate ideas that push for progressive social change by empowering millions of individuals at festivals, events, workplaces and schools throughout the world.

Global Inheritance’s Energy Playground will return to JazzReggae with an entertaining and active addition to the festival experience. Join the sustainable movement by generating energy on a seesaw, swing set, or human hamster wheel that convert motion into 12-volt energy used to power a snow cone machine. Participants will be able to enjoy a refreshing snow cone after powering up the machine. The Energy Playground not only provides a fun experience for all ages, but also promotes the use of alternative energy sources.
