Taste of the Caribbean and Jerk Festival in Hartford

Sat Aug 3, 2019

Enjoy a taste of the Caribbean and savor authentic cuisine while admiring spectacular costumes and dance as island rhythms take over the Mortensen Riverfront Plaza.

Riverfront and CAYASCO team up to offer a full day of music, dance, Caribbean games, and fun children’s activities. For some, the highlight of the day is the Carnival Parade and the dazzling costumes. For others, it’s getting a taste of fiery jerk chicken.
