TORONTO -- Today marks the start to the annual Grace International Jerk Festival that takes place in Centennial Park in Etobicoke.
The festival takes place at the bottom of the ski kill and features three days of delicious food, dancing and big names in the music world with Grammy nominated R&B artists Freddie Jackson, and Brian McKnight performing the opening night.
Among the main attractions the JerkFest has to offer throughout the weekend there will be many other big names in R&B music as well as various arts and crafts to deliver a very authentic Caribbean experience.
The legendary R&B artist Maxi Priest is set to play the festival for the days of Saturday and Sunday whose single Close To You has hit #1 on the U.S. charts.

JerkFest runs from 5 to 10 p.m. on Friday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, single day admission is $8 Saturday and Sunday, admission price varies Friday.
