West Africa Cooks are listing this event called Jollof Festival '19 - NYC on 2019-08-24 15:00:00

Jollof rice is a one-pot rice dish native to many countries in West Africa. Some consider it the predecessor to the cajun dish, jambalaya.

The Jollof Festival is a day-long celebration of the many variations of this dish, unique to the various West African countries that consider it a staple.

The experience of the Jollof Festival focuses on the pride West Africans exude in their native dishes.

Festival participants not only get to enjoy these foods, but get to interact with the festival itself by voting to determine the winner of the “Jollof Wars,” a head-to-head battle that pits one representative from each country against each other for the title of Best Jollof Rice.
