 “We’ve decided to rebrand as Florida Jerk Festival to bring our two events under one umbrella. We also want to launch Florida Jerk Festival as a food and lifestyle brand that is the number one space for all things relating to Caribbean food and culture,” says Damian Tater, the CEO of the Florida Jerk Festival.

Tater also says that for this year’s edition of the Palm Beach Jerk Festival, safe fun is the brand’s top priority. “We want our fans to come out and enjoy the festival, but we also have to ensure that they can do so safely. For this year’s event, we’re following guidelines by the CDC, requiring masks or facial coverings. We’ll also have over 100 sanitization stations at the venue.”

For over 17 years, the two events have been a staple in the Caribbean-American community allowing attendees to take a trip to the Caribbean without touching their passport.

From music to food and fun, Tater says Florida Jerk Festival aims to bring its audience a well-needed break and a relaxing moment. “Many of our attendees have Caribbean roots and they want a way to connect to their heritage right here in South Florida. Through music and food, which are universal languages, we’ve been able to provide an avenue for the Caribbean community and other locals in South Florida to be able to connect to Caribbean culture in an authentic way.”
