It was raining and it was thunderstorming all day Sunday, but that didn’t stop thousands of South Floridians from showing out to the 13th Annual Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival, which is the biggest Caribbean food festival in America. Miami-based reggae legends Inner Circle and brought the traditional authentic roots reggae vibe to the crowd of thousands of attendees.
We ran into Felicia Monet of 99 Jamz and we got introduced to some OG’s in the reggae world – all in while, eating some of the best jerk-inspired dishes in Miami and Ft. Lauderdale from over 40 food vendors with jerk chicken, jerk crabs, jerk popcorn, and jerk ice cream to name a few. VP Records also had a great exhibition with various installations and photos showing the last 25 years of VP Records history.
And as far as the performances, we got to see a great 45 minute set by legendary group Inner Circle and the crowd was there listening to every minute of their set…umbrellas and all. We have tons of photos below from their show in case you missed out. Enjoy!
