Jerk-style cooking is a favorite Caribbean technique that involves certain spices and peppers to deliver a kick that will have your mouth flaming. It is often paired with tropical flavors like mango or pineapple to soothe the tastebuds. Boston Jerkfest is an out-door/in-door family-friendly Caribbean style food festival that features Jamaican jerk hot spiced food and all things spicy and hot. Boston Jerkfest offers 2 days of fun in the sun and takes place the last weekend in June every year in Boston. Boston Jerkfest will feature top local Caribbean Chefs, authentic Caribbean, international and local spicy food for sale, including specialty foods such as: spicy jams, nuts, desserts, and traditional home-made drinks from the Caribbean with entertainment and performances for the whole family. It also features a Rum & Brew Tasting for 21+ festival attendees. Brew & Rum Tasting includes unlimited tastings of rum cocktails, craft beer, and mead drinks only - no food included with ticket.

In the spirit of uprising to make the world an equal and fair place, where every person has a chance to live their dreams, UPrise Foods raising money for Black-owned vegan start-ups.

Their goal is to raise $2,000 that will be split between two start-ups, each receiving a $1,000 grant. The first two start-ups they are working with are two Massachusetts-based vegan catering companies, Cabo Vegan and Discover Vegans. To begin this campaign, Uprise will be donating the first $500. In the event that this fundraiser raises over $2,000 they will offer the additional funds to more than the two chosen start-ups, in increments of $1,000.

Throughout history the Black community has faced systematic oppression and they feel that by helping start-ups that support compassionate and healthy values, they can make a real and lasting change. UpRise Food's understands that real change takes involvement on many levels, and after much soul-searching since the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor, they feel that as a vegan food company, this fundraiser would be a way that they could be a small part of the that change.

This was the worst festival I've ever been to, there wasnt even any food and I paid for unlimited food which was $80. I do not suggest going!!!
This is a preview to Boston and Cambridge Carnival with music food, arts, craft and community. A chance for everyone to experience the Caribbean before you go there and for Island natives, it’s an opportunity to express their pride and heritage. Last year Tempo Rhythm and Steel entertained the crowd with music Trinidad and Tobago. If you are Jamaican den ya done know it’s all about dah Jerk, real ting. All West Indians represented and all are welcome No Problem!!
Friday Night Rum and Brew Tasting A great festive way to close the work week. Come with friends and make new friends as you journey through the myriad of new tastes. Learn all about these new products from the brewers and distillers themselves. Saturday Jerk Fest A little something for everyone. The air is fragrant with the aroma of spicy BBQ. Steel pan in one area invites you to step in and enjoy. Seafood throw down, Cocktail throw down,special cocktails, Local Run and Brew. Children’s area with stilt walking, face painting and arts and crafts. Reggae and African music, Local Dj’s and local Dance Teachers to enhance your experience. Even Double Dutch jump roping, come relax and play. I’ve enjoyed seven years and look forward to every year’s Boston Jerk Fest.

The Boston Jerk Fest is one on the best multicultural summer events. I have have been a participant and never been disappointed. Its an event for the whole family ,adults and children. One of the many entertainment that I look forward to hearing is Tempo International Steel Band. They not only song great, but invite both adults and children to join them when they perform. As for food, you get to sample some of the best Caribbean food in Boston, together with variety of tropical drinks. I look forward to attending every year.
Boston Jerk Fest this summer, New Location Oh so excited
Hey guys, the African American Cultural Festival is coming this weekend! Can't wait to see all of you!

The advertisement was not what the actual event was. Empty vendor tables and portions were smaller than what a dentist would provide in mouthwash.
How to become a vendor for this event ?
