Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee Festival celebrates all things coffee, providing a unique experience for coffee enthusiasts. The seventh staging of the event occurs on 2 March 2024 at the Newcastle Parade Grounds in the hills of St Andrew.

Each year, coffee purveyors, artisans, local manufacturers, and others showcase various creative offerings utilising coffee.
