"The experience of the Jollof Festival focuses on the pride West Africans exude in their native dishes," Demand Africa wrote.
Attendees will get to sample various jollof recipes and vote to determine who wins the “Jollof Wars,” a battle that pits a representative from each country against one another. Liberia won the top prize last year.
The event runs from 3 to 8 p.m. Saturday at the Grand Royale Events Center at 4473 Covington Highway. Tickets to the festival costs $20, but it's an extra $12 if you want to take part in sampling the food.
