2019 Jollof Festival One Day Only Staff Pick

When: Sat., July 27, 3-8 p.m. 2019
Price: $20-$160
Jollof rice, a one-pot dish made with rice, tomatoes, onions, and spices, is a quintessential party food throughout much of West Africa. But while everyone agrees that jollof rice is a beloved dish, many West African countries like Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal, and Liberia have developed a rivalry over who makes the best version of jollof rice. It’s a debate that in recent years has even erupted into the “Jollof Wars” on the Internet. At the Jollof Festival this Saturday, guests will be able to sample jollof rice from at least five different vendors representing different West African countries, and guests will vote for their favorite version. Along the way, enjoy performances, take a glamour shot at the photo booth, and enjoy a dance party. Grab tickets on Eventbrite.
