It will be the events first staging, and it will bring to the Tri-state area, a Caribbean Flavour. "The event will be highlighted by a display of curry cuisine", says Patrick 'Lexus' Simpson of International Curry Fest. He emphasized that the day will be one filled with togetherness, the kind that will be created by fun, food (curry dishes) and entertainment.


There will be curry cook-offs, which will include the curry duck cook-off and the tassa competition, which will be between Indian descendants, he revealed.

Further, he said that music will be provided by Byron Lee & the Dragonaires, Mickey Spice, Dutchess, Mikal Rustle, backing band Code Red. And, in keeping with the objective to create a community event, there will also be Cricket and Netball matches between Florida based teams comprised of community residents. There is also going to be belly dancing and henna painting.

Sponsors of the event include, VP Records, Western Union, YardFlex, and Cox Radio - Hot 105 FM.
