8. Caribbean Shrimp Festival
What’s on deck: There’s only one food at this festival: shrimp. But don’t assume this shrimpy shindig is small in scale. There are at least as many ways to cook shrimp as there are to skin a cat, which is to say, a lot, from old favorites like shrimp fried rice, and peppered or curried shrimp, to whatever mad dish you can imagine, so long as it involves shrimp.
Where it’s at: Montego Bay
When it’s at: July 24th, 12pm - Midnight.
What else you should know: The event includes a fashion show, a circus, and something called a “mobile night club,” which we choose to assume means a “portable party place,” as a “night club for your mobile devices” seems too niche even for a single-food festival. General admittance is $700.
