Producers of the Florida, New York, and Canada Grace Jamaican Jerk Festivals, along with Orlando and Palm Beach festivals, have partnered to celebrate the food, music, art, and the culture of jerk in an unprecedented way with National Jamaican Jerk Day – USA, Sunday, October 25th.

Jamaican jerk cuisine has evolved from simple, local street food to gourmet status in first-rate restaurants worldwide and is celebrated through numerous Jerk Festivals around the globe.
“We’re encouraging everyone to create their own special jerk dishes at home and join the celebration by posting their dish to on social media,” said Florida festival CEO Eddy Edwards, in keeping with the theme: “Fire up yuh grill, come hold a vibes & watch us LIVE!!!”
