national jamaican jerk day

Sunday can’t come fast enough for many waiting to celebrate national Jamaican jerk day at the much anticipated Florida Jerk Fest 2022 at the Apopka Amphitheater. For the event organizers Full-A-Vybez Inc this is an event that has been growing in its 9th year in central Florida.

In keeping with its dedication to community and charity, the Florida Jerk Festival will give $1 from each festival ticket to the JaMIN Music Entrepreneurship, which was organized by Jamaica’s Consul General for the Southern United States, Oliver Mair.

MC Wally British and DJs Agony and Interceptor will be providing the stage’s soundtrack. Veteran Jamaican dancehall musician Spragga Benz, the Bad Boys of Reggae, Inner Circle, and Soca heavyweight Pumpa will be performing live.

All attendees will be getting free samples of jerked cuisine, while all adults receive free tastings of Duke and Dame whiskey. In addition, there will be an exciting Jerk Cook-off competition, mixology demonstrations, and a fun children’s area called “The Kids Zone”.
