Come for the Food, Stay for the Fun!!
The aroma of jerk cuisine will tickle your senses. The sounds of Reggae, Dancehall, and Soca music will make you dance. There are few better combinations than tasty food and hot pulsating music set in a relaxed atmosphere. That’s the essence of the Atlanta Caribbean Jerk Festival.
As the only event of its type in the state of Georgia, and one of the largest Caribbean themed food festivals in the USA, the annual Atlanta Caribbean Jerk Festival has been showcasing the flavors and rhythms of the Caribbean to Georgia and surrounding states since 2006. The Jerk Festival was named the BEST JAMAICAN/CARIBBEAN ANNUAL EVENT IN GEORGIA by the website www.jamaicans.com
This annual celebration of Caribbean food and music features live reggae, calypso, and gospel performances by national and international acts on the festival main stage. There are food vendors, craft vendors, fruit vendors, and even jelly coconut vendors. There will be games and prizes galore for the kids in their very own Kid Zone. There is also a young people’s activity area. The competition inside the games tent is always intense as dominoes experts battle for supremacy. Can anyone say 6 love!! Lovers of ludo, bingo, and checkers will also have the opportunity to match skill and wits against each other.
Jerk Fest 2017 will be bigger and better and has something for everyone!
