Almost anything can be improved with music, as evidenced by tuba-accompanied balcony serenades, operatic State of the Union addresses, and yodeled bank statements.

The seventh annual Northwest World Reggae Festival boosts the positive energy of visitors and locals alike with live music, art-centered workshops, kiosks from more than 50 vendors, and booths from local nonprofit organizations and sustainable businesses. A three-day pass grants guests access to a smorgasbord of pulse-pounding reggae and activities until the clock strikes midnight or the constant dancing summons a downpour. This year’s musical lineup includes Alika with L.A.-based Quinto Sol and the bass-riffing legend Clinton Fearon and the Boogie Brown Band. With the aid of community participation, concertgoers also gain access to free activities such as a drum workshop, a youth soccer camp, and a seminar teaching participants how to build and tie-dye a better stock portfolio.
Tucked away in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, Bob's Ranch, a well-maintained, private campground with fresh mountain-spring water and towering trees, treats lodgers to a shaded stay in close proximity to the main stage. Campers can choose to hunker down in a tent, car, or the interior of an insulated bongo drum.
