Rooted in Love and Positivity

Hawks and Reed is proud and excited to present the return of The Charlemont Reggae Festival on August 20th, 2022. 

There’s no question that the world is a very different place since our last event in 2019. We’ve been through a pandemic, countless acts of violence, and now another war over power. We have missioned this event as a call for love and unity. We need each other, always – but now more than ever. Come join us!

Blast from the Past

The CRF is a place to let go of life’s worries and melt into the joy of being alive.

“Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don't complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don't bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live!”

- Bob Marley
