The 11th Annual Grace Atlanta Caribbean Jerk Festival took place on Sunday, September 4, 2016. The Atlanta Jerkfest is the largest Caribbean food festival in the State of Georgia!   Young and old come out to enjoy great jerk and other Caribbean cuisine, family fun and great music from internationally-acclaimed performing artists.


This year the Atlanta Jerkfest moved to a new venue, The Georgia International Horse Park in Conyers, GA.  Anytime a longstanding event moves to a new venue, there’s bound to be some hiccups. There were long lines to park and even longer lines waiting to purchase tickets and that walk was a bit much for some patrons. 

Atlanta's Top Jerk Chef!

That being said, once inside the venue a great time was had by all. Glen Simmonds, event organizer, made sure to apologize to everyone for any issues they may have experienced.
