The Board of Directors of the Agriculture and Food Fair of the Virgin Islands announces that applications for the 2018 Agfair are available at the Department of Agriculture offices on St. Croix and St. Thomas. Persons interested in participating may pick up applications in the weekday from 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

Agrifest 2018 will be held May 26-28, 2018 on Memorial Day weekend. As usual, the Fair will be located at the Rudolph E. Schulterbrandt Agricultural Complex in Estate Love.

“This year the Fair will be scaled back due to infrastructure issues brought on by Hurricane Maria,” Commissioner of the Virgin Islands Department of Agriculture and Board President Carlos Robles said.

Applicants are reminded that a limited number of spaces are available in each area including Exhibitors, Crop Exhibits, Livestock Exhibits, Food and Refreshments.

Residents and businesses who would like to volunteer their services or donate supplies to prepare the Fairgrounds should call the volunteer Coordinator at 340-690-8327.

“We can use your help especially if you have electrical, carpentry, masonry or plumbing skills; but all help is welcomed,” said Robles.

To inquire about applications, please call Renney Charles at 340-778-0997.
