Invitation

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Agriculture and Food Fair of the U. S. Virgin Islands you are cordially invited to the 46th Annual Agriculture and Food Fair of the U. S. Virgin Islands, to be held February 18-20, 2017 at the Rudolph Schulterbrandt Agricultural Complex in St. Croix. The theme for the Fair is "AGRIFEST 2017: "Agriculture: Our Heritage & Hope for the Future!”.

The Annual Agriculture and Food Fair (Agrifest) is the main venue where agriculture, arts, crafts, and cultural activities are showcased for the benefit of all residents and visitors. It is an ideal occasion for fairgoers to be exposed to the various agricultural and craft products that are grown and manufactured in the Caribbean. It can also provide great opportunities for collaborative efforts between the Virgin Islands and other Caribbean countries.

Hotel reservations should be made as early as possible, as during the weekend of the fair rooms are usually filled early. Please let me know if you plan to attend and your arrival date. Ground transportation arrangements would be made to facilitate your stay.

Consult the Guidelines for Off-Island Participants and complete the registration form provided below.

Sincerely,
Kwame N. Garcia, Sr.
Director of Off-Island Participation
