Trelawny Yam Festival

Monday, April 21, 2014 (All day) to Friday, November 14, 2014 (All day)

A celebration held  in the main square of Albert Town, Trelawny to honour the Yam, which is believed to be one of Jamaica’s most popular foods.  In the south Trelawny area of Jamaica the yam is a huge part of the livelihood and economy, this is what sparked the idea for this festival. It was originally a way to raise money for local farmers and support the local community. Since then it has grown, attracting Jamaicans and visitors/tourist from all walks of life.
