The Delightful Festival (African Delights, Asian Delights, Caribbean Delights and Latinx Delights) celebrates Jamaica's vibrant immigrant communities by presenting a series of free evenings of ethnic cuisine, music and cinema.
COVID-19 forced us to cancel the second half of last year's programming, but we are pleased to announce that The Delightful Festival is back -- virtually.
We may not be able to be delightful in the same room this Spring, but we can still be delightful together -- from the comfort of our homes -- via Zoom, Facebook and YouTube.
Join us for the first of four delightful events this year, as we continue the tradition of celebrating Jamaica's immigrant communities through the food, music and cinema that is: The Delightful Festival.

Caribbean Delights - we're going cross cultural for this delightful evening, celebrating both Trinidad and Barbados. Our singer, Lima Calbio, might just be the reigning Queen of Soca.
