FREDDIE McGregor, Romain Virgo, Richie Spice, and Cham (formerly Baby Cham) are slated to power up the main stage of the sixth annual Orlando Jerk and Caribbean Culture Festival on Sunday, October 15.

The festival is scheduled for the central Florida Fairgrounds on West Colonial Drive in Orlando, Florida. The event is earmarked to start at 3:00 pm.

According to organisers, Full-A-Vybez Inc, the live entertainment will be complemented by delicious Caribbean dishes.

“Central Florida is comprised of a diverse and authentic Caribbean jerk culture, which we seldom get the opportunity to showcase. This year's festival will include talented culinary personalities who will take centre stage to compete for the Caribbean's top culinary honours,” said event publicist Keisha Freeman.

She said attendees will have an opportunity to indulge in tasty libations, music, fun, and games. Truly a family inspired festival, the kids' zone is guaranteed to attract youngsters with fun, interactive programming throughout the day. There will be domino games as well as a variety of board games for adults.

Freeman added that the festival honours the cultural richness, heritage and flavour that the Caribbean jerk seasoning adds to food and traditions.
