Get your family ready and tell a friend that Markham Park in Sunrise is the place to be on Sunday, November 9, 2014 for South Florida’s premier food and entertainment event, the Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival. Featuring tons of food and performances, including legendary reggae group Inner Circle.
In this, the event’s 13th year, expectations are high and the festival promises to be “the most fun you’ll ever have.” There will be the usual delectable assortment of jerk delights, popular cooking competitions and demonstrations, as well as informative and entertaining cultural presentations. The children will have loads of fun in the Kidz Zone and to top it off, popular reggae artistes will deliver high-octane performances on the Main Stage.
For the big day, November 9 at Markham Park, there will be food and more food. The Publix Cooking Pavilion is a Jerk Festival hot spot where top chefs and armature cooks alike test their cooking chops in the Jerk Cook-off and Celebrity Quick Fire Challenge.
Winners of these competitions get bragging rights, cash prizes and the coveted Dutch Pot Trophy for the Jerk Cook-off champion. But it’s not just about the food. You’ll also get a healthy serving of history, culture and entertainment on two cultural stages.
As usual, the event will end with a musical explosion on the Main Stage. An exciting lineup of reggae artistes including the world renowned Inner Circle, the smooth saxophonist Dean Fraser, Luciano the “Messenjah”, Tarrus Riley who is known for his smash hit, “She’s Royal” and Duane Stephenson from “August Town” will bring their brand of music to keep patrons rocking. From beginning to end, this festival will offer tons of fun for the entire family.
