About this event

The California Roots Festival is a three-day event packed with live music, fantastic food, refreshing beverages, creative artwork and sustainable practices. Reggae acts from around the globe culminate at the Monterey County Fair & Event Center for good vibes during the Memorial Day weekend. Cali Roots is not just a music festival, it's a multi-layered experience, curated for music lovers who want to bring more than just stage performance memories home. Sure, we deliver the best of the best in music - our stages are consistently stacked with the who's who in the reggae rock & conscious hip-hop genres with acts of today and tomorrow - but that's not all that makes up our identity! We are proud of all the accomplishments we have made as a community, purposefully implementing initiatives that to further enhance the overall festival experience. As an event and a community we will continue to grow, stretching our branches while always remaining true to our California Roots.
