JAMDAY is an initiative of the Jamaican (Ottawa) Community Association Inc. (JOCA) to celebrate a blend of Jamaican food, culture and diversity.
Originally launched on August 10, 1970, JAMDAY is a wonderful opportunity to experience the rich culture of Jamaica through reggae music, folk dances, songs, stories, delicious Jamaican cuisine, games and much more.
World-class artists live from Jamaica and local artists will be featured.
This one of a kind event will be packed with fun and enjoyment for the whole family. This year’s celebration will be held on Saturday, August 6, 2016 at Mooney’s Bay Park from noon to 10:30 pm.
This popular event, hosted by the Jamaican (Ottawa) Community Association, brings together all people to celebrate the contribution Jamaicans have made to the Canadian mosaic.
Jamaicans have joined with the local community in exploring, learning and sharing their cultures.
