JerkFest is an annual celebration that brings together delicious jerk cuisine, exciting music and great family friendly entertainment. From families with young children to businesses and the entire community at large, the festival has something for everyone to enjoy.  


The 16th annual Grace Jerk Festival is pleased to announce the August 11-13 headliners.  The 3-day performance schedule kicks off on August 11th with featured performances by Brian McKnight, The Pinchers, Freddie Jackson & Maxi Priest. The full weekend of delicious food, family fun & activities will be capped off by a night full of music and dancing.

Brian McKnight – Will be gracing the stage for our Love and R&B Men of Soul edition on Friday. Along with several Grammy nominations, Brian McKnight has been the recipient of American Music Awards, Soul Train Awards, NAACP Image and Blockbuster Awards, and Billboard Songwriter of The Year. He has crossed the boundaries of EVERY medium.

The Pinchers – Legendary is just one word to accurately describe Pinchers, he came up with hits for a variety of producers, including Philip “Fatis” Burrell and Red Man (Mass Out). The single to make the breakthrough, however, was “Agony”. It quickly made him a minor celebrity in Jamaica, to the point where he was offered (and accepted) advertising endorsements from a local vineyard. Catch him live on the festival stage the 12th and the 13th.

Freddie Jackson – After almost 4 decades in the music industry, Freddie Jackson is still upholding his buzz with fans and promoters around the world. Early on in his career, Freddie became the voice of the “Grown and Sexy” by singing some of the world’s most memorable music. Whether it was time to dance or time for romance, Freddie has earned the title as a one of R&B soul’s most valuable contributors, by performing his long resume of pure timeless music. Freddie Jackson joins the stage with Brian Mcknight for our Love and R&B Men of Soul edition Friday the 11th.

Maxi Priest – Only a handful of singers succeed in transcending their genre without losing the essence of who they are. Superstar Maxi Priest is one of those artists whose own unique vision has led him to tremendous international success, being the first reggae artist to have a No. 1 hit worldwide, including the U.S. Billboard charts.
