2014 Sponsorship Opportunities Boston JerkFest™ is an out‐door/in‐door family‐friendly Caribbean style food festival that features Jamaican jerk spiced food and all things spicy and hot. Boston Jerkfest™ is Saturday, June, 28 2014 at the Benjamin Franklin Institute, 41 Berkeley Street in the South End, downtown Boston and offers two sessions: 11am‐3pm and 4‐8pm. This location is very accessible to public transportation and plenty of parking and makes it ideal in accommodating this type of festival. In the inaugural year in 2013, the festival sold out and as a result have expanded the festival footprint for 2014. A recap and highlight of Boston Jerkfest™ can be viewed here.

It also features a Rum & Brew Tasting for 21+ festival attendees. We offer a multi-media marketing campaign that will provide maximum visibility for your brand. The event is expected to reach more than 5,000 people to attend this fun and engaging festival that will reach a diverse audience, including residents, of the South End, Cambridge and Greater Boston, college students, and visitors from the New England region.
