The Rainforest Seafood and Music festival is one of those events that combines the finer things in life, in this case food and reggae. It is an all day event from 11 am till 11 pm. Some of Jamaica’s best chefs showcase top seafood dishes. Rainforest, by the way, is the Carribean’s largest distributor of frozen seafood. The festival is also a classical Jamaican family fun day with activities for the young ones in the Kiddies Village. And even more important: there’s a stage show in the evening.

The Rainforest Seafood and Music festival is a newcomer on thescene with its first edition held in 2013. It got a raving review in the Jamaica Gleaner where it was called the crème de la crème of staged concerts. The event is back on the scene in 2017 after a one year hiatus.



The 2017 edition will be held on Ash Wednesday, March 1


The line-up for the 2015 edition features the likes of Bounty Killer, Tifa, Ding Dong, Romain Virgo, Cocoa Tea and Kevin Downswell.



The venue is Catherine Hall Entertainment Centre, Montego Bay, St. James. That’s the same venue where Sumfest takes place in July.



Proceeds of the event will be donated to the the Cornwall Regional Hospital.
