Memorial Day is the unofficial start of the summer season and summer means outdoor festivals. Unofficially kick off the festival season with KayaFest, a block party that fills Smallman Street with music and Caribbean-inspired food. Performers cover a lot of ground, including folk, (Bindley Hardware Co.), rock (Chase and the Barons), soul (Elias Khouri), reggae (Tropidelic), and more. The one thing the acts have in common? Good vibes and irresistible rhythms.
