Reggae on the River!

On the weekend of July 16th and 17th, 2011, the Mateel Community Center is proud to present the 27th annual Reggae On The River at Benbow Lake State Recreation Area in southern Humboldt County, CA.  An internationally renowned showcase of the best in reggae and world music, this year’s event will feature two stages (an ROTR first!) and is shaping up to be a good one.

Camping for Reggae on the River will be at Cooks Valley. There is a weekend pass, a day pass, or a single night pass available for purchase. Cooks Valley offers river access, camping in the shade of the redwoods and showers (cold). Shuttles run from the campground to the event site. There are other additional campgrounds in the area as well.
