The UK's biggest food festival dedicated to Caribbean food returns bigger and better for another amazing family day of food, drink, shopping and music.

We have a brand new site located in a popular London park, with 30,000 square metres of parkland event space that can easily accommodate up to 8000 people with social distancing.

This will be an unforgettable outdoor experience where you can purchase delicious cuisines from different islands of the Caribbean. Bring your picnic blankets and foldable chairs, spend the day with us, dance to reggae, the music of Motown, R&B classics, 80s, 90s and drink lots of rum punch.


This event will feature over 20 of the UK's best restaurants and street food vendors, representing islands all over the Caribbean.

Countries such as Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, Antigua, Dominica, Barbados, Guyana, Grenada plus more will all be represented

Over 50 variations of dishes including vegan options will be on sale!

Brand new to the 2022 event will be The Reggae & Jerk Village. A dedicated area away from the main stage with all the jerk chicken and fish you can handle, plus a DJ playing non stop reggae music. We have also added a shopping market marquee and George Irvin funfair rides for the children.
