Jamaica Spices Up Culinary Tourism with Curry Festival

Jamaica's upcoming Curry Festival is a great option for your foodie clients looking for a little something different in the Caribbean.

The event will be kick off at 10 a.m. on Sunday, December 19 at at Turtle River Park in the resort area of Ocho Rios. The festival will showcase the creativity of local chefs who will craft a variety of curry dishes, including curried mango, curried cake, curried ice cream, curried fish, curried conch, curried crab and many more offerings.

Attendees can also learn about the history and origin of curry, and multiple ways curry can be used for medicinal purposes.

As visitors participate in the culinary festivities, they will be entertained by Grammy-award-winning reggae artist Beenie Man and a line-up of other popular reggae artists.

Guests can enjoy cultural activities such as fire and limbo dancers, as well as comedians. A children’s pavilion will feature a waterslide, merry-go-round, bounce-a-bout, mechanical bull, ferris wheel, rock climbing, and more.

JetBlue Airways, one of the official sponsors, will be on hand to give away three round-trip tickets to patrons. Travelers interested in the festival can take advantage of special internet-only rates at Sunset Jamaica Grande Resort in Ocho Rios, available through December 22 at www.sunsetresortsjamaica.com.
