A Reggae Festival to Support
Healthy Food & Healthy Lives
Sunday June 21st from 6pm-10pm
Corner of N.Pacific & Hillcrest Street in Garfield Heights
Rootz at Sundown is the 1st roots reggae festival in Pittsburgh. On June 21st, 2009 musicians creating original pieces of music in the tradition of roots reggae (or reggae that developed from the roots of African & Caribbean cultures that tells the voice of struggle, Rastafarian spirituality & positive & healthy living), will showcase their sounds to the 200 estimated community members in attendance. The main performers will be a Pittsburgh-based band named Man in the Street. In between performers, several Pittsburgh-based reggae Dj’s, will spin roots reggae to keep the crowd moving & enjoying the positive vibrations. The event will also feature healthy, vegetarian and vegan foods, which will be available at to all in attendance and offer their donation to the cause.
The event will raise money in support of ensuring access to healthy food & education about healthy living, through the direct support of Healcrest Urban Farm, whom will be the host site.
Healcrest Urban Farm’s mission is to advocate the people’s power to grow and have access to fresh, affordable, nutritious food. Their vision is to eliminate disparities in the Pittsburgh food system by serving direct needs identified by the Garfield/East Liberty community in the areas of food access and affordability, youth employment, neighborhood clean-up, community green space and environmental education.
