The island of Jamaica is well known for it’s musical exports and its athletic talents. However, there is also a rich culture of food, art, and dance, and there is nothing like experiencing that true authenticity for yourself.

The event (East Beach Festival) will encapsulate the true spirit of Jamaican and African Caribbean diaspora culture, infused with the local culture of South Essex, by the inclusion of cultural activities, music, entertainment and food from the local area, as well as visitor & tourism information on the city.
