Positively Richmond

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — There’s still time to head out to Brown’s Island for the RVA Reggae and JERK Chicken Festival.

The community event featured ten of the best jerk chicken chefs from the east coast, in addition to local musicians playing their best reggae tunes.

An organizer told 8News the festival is a way to bring people together from all different cultures.

“Diversity will become even more important blending our cultures,” said Michael Asante. “Becoming more understanding of each other. Adopting each other’s cultures in some ways that are beneficial to us all and move forward.”

The festival runs until 9 p.m.

Those still interested can buy tickets at the door.
