About
Come! Celebrate with us at the Accompong Maroon Cultural Festival! This free village of Accompong, located in the Cockpit Mountains is home to descendants of the Koromanti and Ashanti people out of Ghana, West Africa who were taken to Jamaica during the Atlantic Slave Trade to work on the plantations. The Maroons were escaped slaves who ran away from the plantations, took to the mountains and form groups of warriors. They were very rebellious. On January 6 each year, the Accompong Maroons celebrate the anniversary of the signing of the 1739 peace treaty with the British. Held in Accompong, St. Elizabeth, this festival marks the victory of the Maroons in the first war against the British in which they fought for over 51 years for their freedom, led by their late warrior leader Cudjoe. Come and enjoy the rituals, food, gumbeh drumming, Maroon tribal songs & dance and browse through the museum.

Maroon festival
Jan 2020
I have been hearing about this once a year festival in Accompong maroon village. I was all excited to see this festival It was one of my reasons to travel at this time of year. It took 5-1/2 hours five and a half hours from Runaway Bay to get there. We went thru some of the most rugged rough roads I have ever driven on We climbs hills and valleys, at times I thought we were in the clouds on top of a mountain. I was disappointed once we get there as there was very little history or any sense of organization. There was a “ museum “ which was a few pictures on tables and very littles else to make the visit worthwhile. If you are someone interested in marijuana in any way ,form or quantity. You would be in the right spot. You find more on jerk food and marijuana than a cultural festival.
One thing I did enjoy was the beauty of the surroundings mountains and valleys. I can imagine what it’s like to see sunrise from there. Breathtaking
