Originally called Jelle’s Annual Harvest Festival, this was a 50th birthday party for our Reverend Mother, Onatti Jellether first held in 1999 in the historic William McClatchy Park, in the Oak Park neighborhood in Sacramento, California. It was the first and only major reggae festival held in Sacramento’s Oak Park. Over 3500 people came into the Oak Park community for a safe, fun-filled day of music, dance and culture. It was a work of love and the festival energy reflected it.
This event is a benefit for the Order Of Olufunmi, to fund the many community services they provide.
