MIRAMAR – The Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival organizers have rolled out the festival’s application (App) which is available for download on Apple and Android platforms. In celebration of their 20th anniversary, the first 3,000 guests who download the app will receive a free non-fungible token (NFT), with commemorative artwork by Jamaican artist Lisa Remey.
The festival is also launching its “Jerk Eats” concierge service. Guests can order meals in advance without joining a line or before they arrive at the festival. This is a first and the roll-out is being introduced through the Boston Jerk vendor with the goal to expand to all festival vendors in the future.
“We are truly excited about these new offerings to our guests,” stated Marie McMorris, Product Development Associate, “Similar to Uber Eats, our Jerk Eats concierge service allows guests to order their meals, choose a convenient pick-up time and collect their order at a designated service area through the festival’s app.” The Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival is once again raising the bar, elevating the customer’s experience and offering value to guests and sponsors through innovative activations.
This year’s event will be staged on Sunday, November 13 at Miramar Regional Park. It marks the triumphant return from a two-year, pandemic-induced hiatus. The anticipation is high, as festival fans are excited about the many new and exciting features. In addition, the promotions in place to celebrate this milestone occasion.
