Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival
Every year, the Jamaican Jerk Festival serves an authentic slice of Jamaica in South Florida. Get a taste of fun as the aromas of jerk chicken, pork, and fish dance in the warm air to the sweet sounds of Reggae music. Aptly named the Jamaican Jerk Festival, the celebration brings together food vendors, home cooks, and renowned chefs—who demonstrate how to make traditional Jamaican recipes.
Multiple stages serve up entertainment for every member of the family. International musicians play classic and modern music, and performance artists keep the art of Jamaican storytelling and other cultural traditions alive. Meanwhile, cooking competitions and celebrity cook-offs invite attendees to become active participants in the celebration.
