Welcoming Reggae Month
The goal of Reggae Month is to attract international acclaim for Jamaica as the Reggae mecca of the world, enhance travel and tourism for the month of February, and provide an educational platform of entertainment for all ages.

Appreciation of Caribbean achievement is a shared cultural reason to mark Black History Month in February. In Jamaica, the shortest month of the year which is dedicated to celebrating distinctive individuals of African descent is also the one designated Reggae Month. Officially declared on Jan. 24, 2008 by Sir Kenneth Hall, former governor general of Jamaica, the month features music appreciation, lectures, films, concerts, dance programs and a myriad of events to laud the genre.
