Event description


After Nigeria made a clean sweep of the Jollof Festivals DC & NYC in 2017, Jollof festival '18 is bound to be even more competitive! NYC, who will win the Jollof wars 2018?! :D

EAT your way through the best Jollof rice dishes NYC has to offer at our annual Jollof Festival. We've challenged NYC's Jollof chefs and restaurants to come up with exciting takes on this classic comfort food. The event is full of fun, and you will have an opportunity to cast an anonymous vote for the best-made Jollof during the event.
