I highly recommend The LIME Montego Bay Jerk Festival, one of Western Jamaica's premier food festivals that celebrates family, food, entertainment and Culture.
The Festival is designed to attract and appeal to individuals and companies that are trendsetters in music, food and beverage. The number of patrons has been steadily growing since inception in 2010, as a result in 2013, the festival drew 15,000 patrons. A consistent draw for foodies through food tourism, the Festival facilitates mouth-watering jerk entrees, provides activities for children and presents authentic Jamaican entertainment tailored for families.
The evening into the night will entail a grand concert/stage show with a mixture of gospel, comedy, soca, reggae, singers and DJ’s. Gates open at 10 am and ends at 12 midnight. The jerk booths and or any other booths at the festival are rented to vendors.
