For decades, a constant summer event in Portland has been Reggae Sundays at Jones Landing on Peaks Island. The concept of the event has not changed for a very long time. People hop on one of the continent’s first ferries, head to Jones Landing from 11 a.m. and sit down to enjoy the music, the nice weather and some adult drinks. There had been rumors in recent weeks that a change in management could end Reggae Sunday at Jones Landing on Peaks Island. In fact, it’s not going anywhere. But there will be some changes.
Shared on Facebook by Jones Landing, Milly’s Skillet operators will take over Jones Landing for the 2022 season. Unlike past years, Jones Landing will begin welcoming visitors 7 days a week. Milly’s will serve its signature dishes like burgers, tacos and lobster rolls. During the evening hours, Jones Landing will offer elegant dinner service under their awning or a less formal bar menu with bites to share. They will also have live music more than on Sundays during the busiest weeks of the year. For many who have visited Peaks Island over the years, change has been long overdue. But what about the beloved Reggae Sunday?
It will still happen every summer Sunday, but it might not be the old school party of yore. Jones Landing plans to expand its Sunday hours to include morning brunch with barbecue offerings during the day. In the past, the music often started at noon or 1 p.m. Jones Landing has announced that they will have reggae music on Sundays, but it will start at 3 p.m. The event will start on Sunday, May 29.
Jones Landing plans to open May 13 as a full-service bar and restaurant for the 2022 season.
