JAMDAY 2021 Festival celebrates the Independence of Jamaica. Our featured event, Jamaica Jeapordi will be raising funds for charities.

This year’s JAMDAY events will be all virtual from August 6-8, 2021. We invite everyone to join in and not only experience the rich culture of Jamaica through reggae music, folk dances, songs, stories, food, games and more but also support charitable causes through this first of its kind event – Jamaica Jeapordi .
