Reggae Sundays on Peaks Island Will Return This Summer With a Few Changes
For decades, a consistent summer event in Portland has been Reggae Sundays at Jones Landing on Peaks Island. The concept for the event hasn't changed in a very long time. People hop one of the early ferries from the mainland, head into Jones Landing from 11am on, and sit back to enjoy music, great weather, and some adult beverages. There had been rumors in recent weeks that a management change may bring an end to Reggae Sunday at Jones Landing on Peaks Island. As it turns out, it's not going anywhere. But there will be some changes.
Shared on Facebook by Jones Landing, the operators of Milly's Skillet will be taking over Jones Landing for the 2022 season. Unlike in years past, Jones Landing will begin catering to the visiting crowds 7 days per week. Milly's will serve up their signature items like burgers, tacos, and lobster rolls. During the evening hours, Jones Landing will offer an elegant dinner service under their canopy or a less formal bar menu featuring shareable bites. They'll also have live music on more than just Sundays during the busiest weeks of the year. For many who have visited Peaks Island over the years, the change has been overdue. But where does it all leave the beloved Reggae Sunday?
It'll still happen every summer Sunday, but it may not be the old school party of days past. Jones Landing plans to extend their Sunday hours to include brunch in the morning with barbecue offerings during the day. In years past, the music often started at noon or 1pm. Jones Landing has announced they will have reggae music on Sundays, but it will begin at 3pm. The event kicks off on Sunday, May 29th.
Jones Landing plans to open on May 13th as a full service bar and restaurant for the 2022 season.
