the Jamaican Day Extravaganza 2016
The Edmonton Sports & Social Club, Church Street, Edmonton, London, N9 9HL
Sunday July 17th 2016
This event held for the 2nd year at The Edmonton Sports & Social Club has a huge ground for this type of event. After doing this last year we have decided to step up what should be on offer if we are to present Jamaica as the exotic island it is. It has a broad market appeal as the popularity of Jamaican Cuisine crosses easily in London’s dynamic, multi-ethnic population, who love anything to do with Jamaican Food and Drink and culture. It starts at 12 noon and finishes at 8pm.
Raffle tickets will be sold with part proceeds donated to Prostrate Cancer UK. The Jamaican Day Extravaganza 2016 describes it for what it is. It will highlight Caribbean style cuisine in a garden party setting. 20/20 Cricket and a Domino Tent.
There will be vendors selling many culinary delights of Jamaica, alongside Fresh fruit from the Caribbean, Art & Craft merchandise, competitions for Best Dressed Jamaican costumes, either in Jamaica’s colour or Jamaica’s traditional costumes and various other types of entertainment guaranteed.
There will also be a stall selling authentic imported food from Jamaica ideally Grace Foods brands. All this with the backdrop of great reggae vibes being played as they sip mouth watering rum punch or a coconut jelly or a simple snow cone.
The intention is on entrance attendees will be taken on an adventure of being back in Jamaica offering our culture at its very best. There will be entertainment for children displaying games of what used to be played as a child…Dandy Shandy, Hop Scotch etc. And the good ole face painting which always goes down a treat, plus bouncy castle to name a few.
For adults we are envisioning among the musical entertainment and sports of Cricket and Dominos, there will be an information area that would promote like a One Stop area, promoting local information about Jamaica and its services. Like Jamaica Property Services lawyers, Passport and Visa Information that is serviced via Jamaica High Commission, The Jamaica Tourist Board, Digicel and Bill Payment services for Jamaica, including a Travel agency. All are invited and welcome. For more details visit Www.jamaican-extravaganza.com.
