Reggae in the Rift Valley Festival


Reggae in the Rift Valley is an annual festival organized on behalf of the communities in Shashemene and Adama in Ethiopia’s southern Oromia region. The programme includes circus acts, live music, an exhibition and sale of arts and crafts and other events to raise money for local community projects.

The festival is held from 24 to 27 December at the Shashemene Health Centre. In January it moves to Adama Stadium. The proceeds go towards the Shashemene Health Centre, initiatives of the Bright Millennium Youth Awareness Committee in both Shashemane and Adama, and the Oromia Women Entrepreneur Association.

The festival is coordinated by the Safari Lodge Hotel in Adama and the Bright Millennium Campaign, which promotes local community development in the area.
