Event Name: Accompong Maroon Festival

The Accompong Maroon Festival is celebrated with gusto by the Maroons of Western Jamaica, the descendants of runaway slaves. They gather every year in Accompong to mark their victory over the British with a day of festivities.
There is traditional dancing, singing, blowing of the abeng - a cow horn - and the playing of Maroon drums. The men typically take charge of the cooking and no salt is used. Non-Maroons are welcome and the celebrations have been known to go on for as long as three or four days.
