July 22nd: The US Jerk Festival

Yes, you are not mistaken: when referring to jerk, I am talking about food, not individuals!

On July 22nd, come to the Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival to celebrate the independence of Jamaica 50 years ago and the 90th anniversary of Grace Food (Caribbean food manufacturer). It will take place at Roy Wilkins Park, Queens, New York from noon to 8pm. There will be hot and spicy food as well as music!
