After taking the year 2020 off, Africa’s leading celebration of Jollof, The Jollof Festival returns in 2021 – scheduled to take place at the City Galleria Mall (Behind the Accra Mall) on 11th December 2021.

The continent’s biggest Jollof event, The Jollof Festival 2021 will see thousands of food lovers come together to eat and drink from an extensive selection served up by some of the best chefs, restaurants, and street food vendors in Accra – promising to be bigger than previous editions, and we couldn’t be more thrilled!

This year’s Jollof Festival is a specially curated culinary experience dedicated to celebrating Ghana’s beautiful gastronomy, inspiring fellow Africans to discover new tastes and recipes, promoting the Ghanaian delicacy’s authenticity and highlighting the role of food in Ghanaian Culture by bringing together a vast number of food lovers, and treating them to a mouth-watering array of Jollof, in addition to bites and sips from a dynamic selection of Accra’s celebrity chefs, hobbyist / influencer cooks and local vendors.

A major highlight of the festival is the crowning of the Celebrity/Influencer Jollof Cookoff – a title reserved for the cook with the best tasting Jollof at the event’s Jollof cooking competition, which allows influencer cooks to showcase their cooking skills with customized / special recipes. As part of our efforts to make this year’s competition more exciting, we are inviting both male and female celebrities/ influencers as contestants. The winner of the Jollof cooking competition stands to win products from our prestigious sponsors: OLAM Ghana, makers of Tasty Tom Tomato Paste and the Tasty Tom Jollof Mix, Malta Guinness, and Wilmar Africa, makers of Frytol Vegetable cooking oil, Fortune Rice and Myst Water.
