Over 30,000 people attend every year to celebrate St. Croix’s agricultural heritage. The fair features music, contests, a petting zoo, food stands, and of course tons and tons of fresh, locally-grown produce! Highlights include:
- Food stands selling local dishes such as kallaloo, maufe, tarts, and candies, and local drinks like ginger beer, sorrel, passion fruit and maubi
- Bands from all three Virgin Islands playing on three different stages
- Food demonstrations, showcasing both local ingredients and culturally significant recipes
- Public contests on Sunday for the best soursop drink, and on Monday for best ginger sugar cake
- 30 stalls with school and youth exhibits
- A youth calypso contest where each contestant will perform one original agriculturally-inspired song
The three day-festival starts Saturday February 19 at 9am, and runs until Monday February 21 at 6pm. It is located at the Rudolph Shulterbrandt Agricultural Complex in Estate Lower Love.
