Only jerks don’t love Boston’s annual JerkFest™, and with two days of fun, food, and plenty of spice, what’s not to love? So, for all those who aren’t sure if they’ll be attending this June 23-24, we’ve got five good reasons why the Boston JerkFest™ should end up on your summer to-do list. Starting with number 1…
1. You won’t find this food anywhere else.
While some of the Jamaican classics you may be able to find at a specialty restaurant, there are a number of food vendors at JerkFest™ creating slightly more unique culinary concoctions. The only requirement is that it has to have a spicy or jerk element to it, spawning such memorable options like a Spicy Jerk Cheesecake.
2. Learn about Jamaican culture.
In addition to being a culinary experience, the Boston JerkFest™ is a cultural experience where visitors can be exposed to and learn about another culture in a way that’s fun and downright delicious!
3. Visit the Rum & Brew Tasting room.
Live music and unlimited tastings of rum, wine, craft beer, and so much more. Need we say more?
4. Explore and sample local vendors.
New to the Boston food scene? Dozens of vendors come to JerkFest™ to share their hottest (in more ways than one) menu items. If you’re looking for a great way to try a variety of local restaurants, this is the perfect opportunity.
5. Everyone else is going.
After a few years, the Boston JerkFest™ has become bigger and better than ever, drawing larger crowds year after year. Don’t be the only one to miss out.
