After much deliberation and consideration, the Agriculture and Food Fair of the U.S. Virgin Islands Board of Directors has postponed the 50th Annual Agriculture and Food Fair due to the ongoing uncertainties of the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2022 fair is now scheduled for May 28-30.

The board would like the 50th Jubilee to be celebrated in grand fashion; however, with the current state of the pandemic and the recently discovered new variant, this may not be feasible. The board anticipates the fair can be safely executed in a manner to truly represent the golden jubilee in May 2022.

It apologizes for any inconvenience and disappointments this may cause. As we know, the Presidents’ Day weekend is synonymous with the Agriculture and Food Fair of the U.S. Virgin Islands; however, the board is keeping the safety and wellbeing of the community in mind. Vendor applications will be available beginning Feb. 1, 2022.
