Misty Bliss is an annual cultural festival held at Holywell - the main recreation area within the Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park, to celebrate the designation of Jamaica's first national park in February, 1993. In particular, as the tagline "celebrating mountain pleasures and treasures" suggests, Misty Bliss celebrates the rich cultural and natural heritage of the Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park (BJCMNP).

Misty Bliss is a family oriented festival featuring traditional music, dance and food, as well as art and craft, and local produce on sale. Entertainment is usually provided by local and national talent including the Charles Town Maroon Drummers and Dancers. Traditional Jamaican food such as jerk pork, bussoo soup, ital stew, dukoono and chocolate tea prepared by local community members including the Bowden Pen Farmers Association.

ALL proceeds from Misty Bliss are used by the JCDT for management of the BJCMNP. In addition, the event benefits local community businesses and raises awareness about the BJCMNP.
