22ND JULY 2017 – WERE BACK

Blaze up the coals, Plug in the amps and turn up the heat!

The mighty Jerk Jam is returning to Fareham.

Originally started some years ago, when a group of overly competitive music fans who had all spent many years annually guzzling down booze and Jerk chicken on the streets of Notting Hill on carnival weekend, decided to host a Caribbean BBQ for their friends and family.
Let’s all chip in to the cost by each one of us preparing some meat to bring to the cook off” was the innocent suggestion by someone.
A sound system was installed and a temporary roof erected in the back yard of one of the current organisers, and the guests started to arrive laden with delicious grub.
As the music crept louder and the beer flowed more freely, people began to congregate around the Jerk pan, sampling all the food on offer, giving opinion, firing off put downs and issuing culinary challenges. It became apparent that this was no mere BBQ… This was a contest.
At the end of that brilliant evening the decision was unanimous “We should do this every year”…. So we did.
The Jerk-Off was born and it’s grown bigger ever since.
We hold a live cooking tournament inside a boxing in which 4 chefs at a time battle it out across multiple rounds over the hot coals of 4 authentic Caribbean Jerk Pan BBQs. This happens throughout the daytime and all the food cooked is distributed to the crowd for free tasting.
We have 3 live music stages which have hosted some amazing bands as well as our exclusive outdoor moving mechanical nightclub, The Vault, which has been graced by international DJs. Past performers have included Dawn Penn, Black Slate, General Levy, Norman Jay MBE, The Fyah Keepers, Mark Broom and many more.
We have loads of kids activities including fun fair rides, bouncy castles, arts and crafts, face paints body glitter and a whole lot more all for FREE!
Now in our 3rd year we’ve changed the name to Jerk Jam and are giving you our biggest line-up yet.
More Food, more Music, more Vibes, more Love and more Fyah!!!
Stay Blessed and keep it Sizzling!
See you this Summer,

The Jerk Jam Crew.

Jerk Jam is all about family.
The idea is to create a one love vibe where you and the kids can kick back,
relax and enjoy the day.
