Celebrate Caribbean Culture at Jerk Fest

Free  .  Past

At this festival, the only thing hotter than the jerk chicken coming off of the grills is the Caribbean sounds coming from the stage. Come for the 5K and stay for all-day, festival fun!

By Mandy Holt
CaribSplash is coming at you with a day of Caribbean culture, food and music. Groove to tunes by Jamrock band, Dub addis and Syychronic Sound while you watch chefs from around the country battle for ultimate bragging rights in the Jerk cook off! Oh, and you'll want to bring the kids along for the bouncy houses and face-painters.

Feeling competitive? The Jerk Fest is your answer. Kick off the day with the Jerk Fest 5K run (or walk!) then settle in for one feisty domino tournament. If you didn't get enough good eats at the Caribbean food court, maybe you'll want to give the Jerk wing-eating contest a try.

Entrance to the event is free, but there is a fee for 5K registration. Get the latest on the festival by checking out their Facebook page.
