Grace Jerk Food Festival (JerkFest)


JerkFest is an annual event celebrating jerk cuisine and Caribbean culture organized by not-for-profit organization Caribbean Promotions Arts & Culture Inc. It was initially started in 2002 to fill the void after the hype of Caribana and extend the Caribbean festive summer season. JerkFest has been voted by BlogTO as one of Toronto's top 50 must attend summer events in 2014 and 2015 and one of Ontario's top 100 festivals since 2011. Ruben Studdard, season two winner of American Idol, has been added to the line up of the Grace International Jerk Food & Music Festival Friday night Love and R&B edition. JerkFest 2016 has a stellar music lineup on Saturday and Sunday that will be headlined by reggae legends Third World, with additional acts including Etana and L.U.S.T. Now in its 15th year, JerkFest has grown to be a staple calendar event in Toronto and draws thousands of visitors each year. JerkFest 2016 will take place from August 5-7 at Cenntennial Park in Etobicoke. For more information, visit Friday from 5pm - 10pm Saturday and Sunday from 11am-10 pm.
