017 East Beach Festival

Shoebury East Beach

The East Beach Festival is an open air multicultural festival, with a carnival spirit and is coming to Shoeburyness.

This Free event will take place over a 2-day period from 13th – 14th of August 2022, and this year will be marking the 60th Anniversary of Jamaica’s Independence

The Island of Jamaica is well known for it’s musical exports and its athletic talents. However, there is also a rich culture of Food, Art, and Dance, and there is nothing like experiencing that true authenticity for yourself.

The event (East Beach Festival) will encapsulate the true spirit of Jamaican and African Caribbean diaspora culture, infused with the local culture of South Essex, by the inclusion of cultural activities, music, entertainment and food from the local area, as well as visitor & tourism information on the city. Over the years the sister festival, Jamaica 0121 Festival affectionately known as Jamaica in the square in Birmingham, has developed a reputation as one of the better cultural festivals in the country which is geared towards the whole family. We expect to bring the same values to the East Beach Festival. A beautiful beach location right by the sea in Essex.

It is anticipated that the event will attract people from all sectors of society. Over the period of the festival, it is hoped that there will be a strong sense of togetherness in Essex, while promoting racial harmony. I do hope you will be able to join us.

If you are over 18 and wish to assist, support, or are able to give some time, we would value your interest and love to hear from you.  We will need volunteers over the two days, which will be a fantastic opportunity for all abilities and skills to be involved in stage production, stewarding, reception, building skills and making new friends, while working, in a live festival environment.

We are inviting Businesses nationally and locally, to actively get involved to either to purchase Cabin stalls or become sponsors.
