One of the largest Caribbean-themed food festivals in North America, the 10th Annual Grace Atlanta Jerk Festival will return this Sunday, September 6 from 12 noon to 11 PM at Panthersville Stadium in Decatur, GA!
Director Glen Simmonds invites everyone to “Come for the food and stay for the fun!” The festival offers jerk cuisine, roast fish, curry, mannish water, roti, bake and salt fish, and various other succulent Caribbean culinary specialties that will tickle your senses. Throw in the pulsating sounds of Reggae, Dancehall, Calypso and Soca and you might think you really are in the Caribbean!
The Top Jerk Chef from 2014 is Chef Donald Roberts of Juci Jerk in Stone Mountain, GA, who impressed judges at last year’s festival where he won the coveted 2014 Grace Foods Atlanta Top Jerk Chef trophy. There will be another ultra competitive cook-off competition this year to determine who will be Atlanta’s Top Jerk Chef in 2015!
Artists to perform at the festival will be:
- Maxi Priest
- Alison Hinds
- Professor Nuts
- Chubb Rock
- Errol Moore
- Mixmaster David
- …and much more!
Part of the proceeds from the festival will go to benefit the Atlanta Montego Bay Sister Cities Foundation and other charitable organizations.
Tickets are $20 advance (until 9/5 at 6PM), $25 (from 9/6 Noon – 5PM), $30 (9/6 5PM – 11PM). Children ages 12 and under are Free.
