Over the last 15 years, the Houston based Annual Legends of Rasta Reggae Festival Tour (Formerly the Annual Bob Marley Festival Tour) has visited over 45 cities in the United States and abroad, making it the longest running Touring Festival in the world. The diversity of the American community, (which includes fans of reggae, dance hall and world-beat music) and the many followers of the “Rasta Movement” (a Christian based religious philosophy involving the descendent of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba), makes each selected city and state excellent stops to promote the messages of the Tour.

In 1991, the Festival began its now very popular tradition of asking the public for donations in lieu of admission during the first 3 hours each day, to benefit participating nonprofits. In 2006 the Tour’s charities will be those that benefit Victims Hurricane Relief funds for Gulf Coast both National and Local charities all 501(c)(3) organization that provide Housing.
Over the last 19 years, this tradition has generated over $990,000 in cash and over 1.9 million pounds of food, school supplies and books for nonprofit organizations throughout the US.

“Universal Love” the theme of the 2006 Legends Tour reflects not only the messages of Reggae music, the Rastafarian ways (a Christian based religious philosophy involving the descendent of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba) and is the foundation for what the Festival has always stood for, and also what is needed in the world now. With so much strife, terrorism and conflict going on in the world today, people everywhere are searching for “Universal Love” in everything that they are involved in.
There or very few vehicles that does provide a chance to understand various different cultures, (such as the Annual Legends of Rasta Reggae Festival Tour) in today’s society it is imperative that the Tour, continues to stop in select Cities and to promote “Universal Love”, to all, no matter which part of the world or culture they may hail from. This helps to create a Universal understanding among all of us.
