Agrifest 2018 Is A Go; Dept. Of Agriculture To Announce New Dates Today

Agriculture / Culture / Entertainment / News / Virgin Islands / February 22, 2018

When residents heard that the 2018 Agricultural Fair would not happen this year because of extensive damage the Shulterbrandt Agricultural Complex in Estate Lower Love sustained during Hurricane Maria, the reaction was one of disappointment and, to a lesser extent, anger.

Disappointment because residents passionate about the annual tradition, and what has become one of St. Croix’s biggest yearly events, argued that “Agrifest”, as the three-day event is affectionately called, could be held at a later date this year, as the Department of Agriculture, which is responsible for hosting the fair, could postpone the event and work on preparing the Estate Lower Love grounds.

D.O.A. has done just that, and the event’s board of directors announced on Wednesday that a press conference is being held today to announce the new 2018 dates.

According to the invite, the board will announce the new dates and theme of the upcoming fair today.

Here are some Consortium pics of the 2017 affair, and an aerial video of the 2016 event.
