Stages and vendors are set up in the park’s southern Oak Hill and Meadow areas along 10th Street.
The festival, established nine years ago, is the annual fundraiser for the nonprofit Hand Over Fist Foundation, which supports programs to educate and economically empower Black families.
Previously called Atlanta Reggae in the Park, it started as a block party-style gathering to celebrate Afro-Caribbean culture, according to the festival website.
“Now, Atlanta Reggae in the Park has evolved into the BeREGGAE Diaspora Music & Arts Festival, a living expression of the creativity, ingenuity, business acumen, pain, struggle, passion and spirit of our diaspora culture,” the website says. “A unique, premium music and arts festival that centers the mental, spiritual, physical and emotional wellness of Black families.”
