Eating through the Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival

On July 17 the Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival returned to Queens for its sixth year. The festival celebrated music, culture, community and of course Jamaica’s famed jerk dishes.

The event brought together local Caribbean communities and put a strong emphasis on food as a means of social gathering. From the cooking demonstrations to the wide array of vendors, the Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival proved that contemporary Caribbean food is about much more than Jamaica’s signature dish.
