JCDC update on 2023 Festival and Gala

The Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC) is advising that because of high demand there are no more tickets for the Grand Gala, scheduled for August 6, at the National Stadium. The JCDC says that the tickets went quickly at the eight outlets and at the Jamaica Festival Village owing to the popularity of the Gala which is the largest event on the Festival Calendar and for which there is no admission fee.

The JCDC is encouraging people attending the Grand Gala on Sunday to dress in the national colours. The gates open at 3:00 p.m. The JCDC however is advising that there will be a Gala Watch Party in the Jamaica Festival Village at the National Arena. Tickets for the Gala Watch Party are available at the JCDC booth in the Village. The gates open at 1:00 p.m. and the Watch Party gets underway at 5:30 p.m.

The Jamaica Festival Village showcases Jamaican food, fashion, art and craft. It also provided the venue for the Jamaica Festival Song Results show, the Festival Queen coronation, the Jamaica Gospel Star Final show and Mello Go-Round, among other activities.

The Jamaica Festival Village will also be the venue for Old Skool Dance Party – the School Uniform Edition – on Saturday night, August 5, featuring Ernie Smith, Johnny Clarke, Pam Hall, Bongo Herman, Droop Lion, Hezron and Warrior King. Backing band is Lloyd Parkes and We the People Band with host, Richie B. The JCDC wants people to come out in their school uniforms/colours and represent their schools.
