Welcome to Kalamazoo Island Fest August 27-29 2015! This is the 20th anniversary of Island Fest and we have a great musical line up to help celebrate the special occasion. Get ready for some good times with three days and nights of reggae music rocking Kalamazoo! Food, drinks, beer, and wine are available by the purchase of tickets, each costing $.50 for items usually priced between three and eight tickets.
