The Music City Jerk Festival will be held at The Nissan Stadium (Lot D) in downtown Nashville.
Jerk is a style of cooking native to Jamaica, in which meat is marinated with a hot spice mixture called Jamaican jerk spice.
Jerk cooking is popular in Caribbean/West Indian communities throughout North America and Western Europe.
The meat is usually (but not limited to) chicken or pork and the main ingredients of the spicy jerk marinade sauce are pimento and Scotch bonnet peppers.
Our event features authentic Jamaican and Caribbean chefs and food vendors who'll prepare your food on the spot.
There will be live entertainment and other activities, too.
The general admission is free. Plus, food sampler tickets are available so you can obtain miniature samples from participating vendors.
