MONTEGO BAY JERK FESTIVAL

 

Anyone sticking around after Sumfest can enjoy even more reggae music and food at the Montego Bay Jerk Festival held in the same venue. The Mobay Jerk Festival is a family oriented day event with food, family entertainment and music. While the younger ones get their entertainment in the Kiddies Village, Foodies can feast on all things jerked: fish, pork, chicken, lobster and more. There is even a Veggie Jerk food station.
