Portland Jerk Festival is the largest annual jerk and food festival in Jamaica which has been a major calendar event for the past 14 years. This food and music juncture is staged at the heritage site at Folly Estate in Portland. The event includes live family entertainment, Jerked food, and other tasty delights

Spicy food lovers will have a fun-filled day at the second staging of the Portland Jerk Festival. Jerk is heavily seasoned meat that is prepared over an open wood fire. The finished product, a favorite with locals and visitors alike, is lightly flavored with smoke. Make sure to have a couple of cold beverages handy to minimize the effect of the pepper.

The aroma of sizzling barbecued pork drifts in the air of Portland Parish, as visitors and Jamaican residents, are invited to sample lobster, fish, chicken, and pork cooked in the traditional island ‘JERK’ way.

Traditional entertainment by local performers will provide that authentic Jamaican atmosphere. While the kids are entertained by fairground rides, face painting, and a bouncy castle. This promises to be a great family event.

Arts and crafts are on sale from stalls, and there is no shortage of food and drink on sale. Held in Boston since its inception in 2000, the festival moved locations to Folly Great House in 2007.
