Calling all Jerks: Jamaican Jerk Festival is Back
|Jerks come in many forms.|
The 11th annual Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival returns to Markham Park on Sunday, November 11th from 10 a.m. - 10 p.m., with dozens of vendors offering everything in the way of jerk -- from chicken to lobster to ice cream.
In addition to lots of spicy things to eat, the festival has a kid's area, interactive cooking demonstrations and, of course, the Jamaican Jerk cooking competition (we like to call it the great south Florida jerk-off).
Of course, music is also a large part of Jamaican culture, and the festival has a great roster of musicians from DJ's to gospel acts to headliners Byron Lee's Dragonaires.
Festival tickets are $20 in advance for adults and children 10 and up (kids under 10 are admitted free), $25 at the gate and can be purchased online or by calling (786) 361-1103. VIP tickets are $75 for adults, $40 for kids 12 and under, and includes priority entry and parking, two alcoholic drinks (21 and over), a Caribbean meal, front of stage viewing area for concerts, a gift bag, and unlimited juice bar.
