Palm Beach Jerk Festival moves indoors for Memorial Day

15th Palm Beach Jerk Festival

Come rain or shine, the island spice will be overflowing at this year’s 15th annual Palm Beach Jerk and Caribbean Culture Festival.

The event is returning to the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach on Memorial Day, a tradition that offering attendees a chance to enjoy authentic Jamaican music, excellent island food, carnival rides and much more. However due to inclement weather, the festivities will take place indoors at the Expo Center.

“We regret having to move the Palm Beach Jerk Festival from outside at the Fairgrounds, but weather forecasts are predicting rain for Memorial Day, which would make continuing the event outside difficult and potentially unsafe. With the safety of our patrons being our main priority, we had no other choice but to transfer the day’s activities indoors” said Damian Tater, representative of Full-A-Vybz Inc. “We appreciate the support of our sponsors, vendors and patrons in this decision.”

Busy has promised an electrifying performance that patrons will never forget. Veteran Reggae Icon Coca Tea who is no stranger to the stage is set to mesmerize the crowd with non-stop hits after hits. Completing the perfect lineup in celebration of our 15th year will be the melodious male group L.U.S.T. (Lukie D, Thriller U, Singing Melody & Tony Curtis), Code Red Band, Andi-Ites, K’Coneil, K’Reema & Reemus K.
