Cherine said fans can come and expect to have a good family time.
“I wont give everything away but patrons can come out and expect to really enjoy themselves. Bring the kids, bring grandma and grandpa and get ready for an amazing time.”
The festival is a family event and is free to the public. Well over fourteen Caribbean countries will be highlighted and patrons will be able to learn more about the Diaspora through music, culture, food, art & crafts.
Cherine has been enjoying much success both in Jamaica and on the International reggae and dancehall scene. Her track Rebel with deejay DI as well as Make Up Woi continue to enjoy steady rotation.
