Marley Gras Jerk Chicken Festival

Saturday, Jan. 20

The Jerk Chicken Festival is a funky fusion of Jamaican musical and culinary traditions with the rich culture of New Orleans Carnival! Enjoy delicious food, drinks and music on two stages. Also, we suggest a good stretch prior to the Bounce vs. Dance Hall on Friday, this way you are getting a good workout in before you go crazy at the festival. #2018Indulgences
