Minneapolis Jollof Festival – 2023

September 2 @ 2:00 pm - September 24 @ 7:00 pm

Festival participants not only get to enjoy these foods, but get to interact with the festival itself by voting to determine the winner.

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 β€œJollof Wars,” a head-to-head battle that pits one representative from each country against each other for the title of Best Jollof Rice.

*Liberia won the first edition of the MN Jollof Festival, who is going to win this year?!
