Mardi Gras + Jamaica = Marley Gras

New Orleans and Jamaican culture are so intertwined that it's only fitting that we have a festival that beautifully blends the two together. Marley Gras celebrates both in a way that only New Orleans can, seamlessly blending Reggae with Brass and Bounce, Jerk chicken with Ya-ka-mein and gumbo, and handmade arts and crafts from New Orleans and Jamaica.

Marley Gras: A Truly Unique Experience

The Jerk Chicken Festival is a funky fusion of Jamaican musical and culinary traditions with the rich culture of New Orleans Carnival!

In addition to great music, food and crafts, the Marley Gras Jerk Chicken Festival also features a scotch bonnet pepper eating competition and a jerk chicken cook-off competition with celebrity judges.
