🌱Local, Green, and Fair Snapshot: The Williams Agency

••••••••••••••••••••••
The Williams Agency is a 25-year-old Marketing firm based in Cambridge. The Williams Agency organizes various events that have a meaningful impact. Their focus on sustainability is not a compromise, but rather a celebration of what their agency is capable of. They work with a wide range of organizations on all things marketing, including branding, strategy, public relations, event planning, and much more, all while maintaining their focus on sustainability. Their success in “marketing with a mission” has reached top food festivals and well-known cultural events in the Boston area.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 has greatly impacted the Williams Agency as they are primarily an events-based company. Many of the well-known events they work on, such as the Boston Local Food Festival and the Boston JerkFest Caribbean Foodie Festival, have been canceled or presented virtually due to the pandemic.

The Williams Agency, along with just about everyone else, has had to be creative to adapt and overcome in these unprecedented times. They had a successful launch of this summer's Virtual @bostonjerkfest event that featured chef demos, a cocktail throwdown, live music, cultural performances, family events and local Jamaican jerk spiced food! Additionally, they have assisted Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts and Cambridge Carnival to keep the community engaged and interested in fun, educational, and sustainable events.

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.

The advertisement was not what the actual event was. Empty vendor tables and portions were smaller than what a dentist would provide in mouthwash.
