Jollof Cook-Off

Can Liberia defend its title this year or will another country takeover the throne? Which country really has the best Jollof? Is it Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Cameroon or Guinea? Don’t believe the hype!! Come and taste for yourself and cast your vote for the country with the best jollof !!

The jollof rivalry between these West African countries is no secret. If you have a West African friend, chances are you have had a jollof dish presented with a hefty serving of trash talk. But is this never-ending culinary war really over taste, or is it sheer display of patriotism and national pride? Let’s determine once again, which country has the best at the 2024 DC Afrobeats Block Party and Jolloff Cook-Off.

Get your tickets now. It’s all going down outdoors at the large patio of Karma DC on Saturday, July 13th.
