Join Jamaica in its yearly celebrations of the birthday of reggae legend Bob Marley. The week-long party includes reggae concerts and films, arts and crafts vendors, and many opportunities to enjoy authentic island foods. Just one of the many events is located in Montego Bay, which hosts the Bob Marley Birthday Bash, an annual concert featuring local musicians. Many of the week-long celebrations are also used to kick-off Reggae Month which is celebration of Jamaica’s reggae music for the entire month of February.

The internationally acclaimed Jamaican reggae singer, songwriter, musician, and guitarist was born on February 6, 1945 on the farm of his maternal grandfather in Nine Mile, Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica, to Norval Sinclair Marley (1885–1955) and Cedella Booker (1926–2008).
