Celebrate all things spicy and hot at the Boston JerkFest, listed by Zagat as one of the city's top 10 summer food events. The flavorful fun takes place at the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology and includes a food festival featuring authentic Caribbean and Jamaican cuisine made with jerk hot spices, and a "Spice Lane," with zesty desserts, jams and hot sauces. Stroll through the indoor-outdoor space, sampling eats from some of the area's best food purveyors, buying spices to recreate the dishes at home and watching cocktail demos and chefs demonstrating their best recipes. For the little ones there are interactive arts and crafts in the Kids and Culture Zone, and for all who love to dance, dozens of live music acts will be playing reggae, steel drums, Caribbean rhythms and more. Your ticket includes entry to the event, access to the Kid Zone, music performances and demos. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
