Jamaican Jerk Cook Off Festival & Fundraiser

Inspired by the histories and traditions of jerk in his hometown of Kingston, Jamaica, President & Founder of My Yute Soccer, Rovel S. Sparkes, decided to initiate a yearly community event not only to fundraise for My Yute Soccer but to share the taste and experience of Jamaican cooking.
