TORONTO — Toronto’s annual Grace Jerk Food Festival (JerkFest) is returning in August for its 15th year.
“JerkFest has continued to grow over the years and has become a highly anticipated calendar event for residents of many cultures,” says Anthony Plummer, executive director of the Festival. “The amazing jerk food and live music are definitely highlights, but the festival has really gained a reputation for its community togetherness and celebration of culture. We’re excited to continue the legacy in our 15th year.”
Taking place Aug. 5 to 7 at Centennial Park in Etobicoke, JerkFest highlights Caribbean culture through jerk food, pulsating music and family-friendly entertainment.
The event will also feature a VIP experience, including a jerk chicken meal prepared by Bliss Tropical Cuisine, the Grace Hot & Spicy Jerk Chicken Eating Competition and the TD Culture Stage.
