Over the last decade, July in Charleston has become a time for celebrating Caribbean food, culture, and music. With a focus on the popular Jamaican jerk seasoning, the Charleston Caribbean Jerk Festival brings the community together with a delicious array of the best local Jamaican-jerk delicacies.
Though the festival has come and gone this year, preparation for next year has already begun, with official dates locked in for July 15, 2023, at Riverfront Park. This family-friendly event is known for unique vendors, live music, and fun competitions like Top Jerk Chef and the Jerk Wing Eating Contest. Children under 12 are free with an adult $10 entry but keep an eye online for next year’s early bird dates, with limited discounted tickets.
The influence of the Caribbean found its way to South Carolina so let’s celebrate at the Charleston Caribbean Jerk Festival and plan your stay next summer. Get your tickets and book your spot now at The Mills House.
