ON THE BALLS: Gov. Ken Mapp

CHARLOTTE AMALIE — Following much discussion and deliberation the membership of the St. Thomas – St. John Agriculture and Food Fair Committee has made the decision to cancel the 33rd Annual Agriculture and Food Fair “based on logistical and numerous other challenges. A meeting has been scheduled with the vendors to discuss related concerns and plans for moving forward.”

The members of the organizing committee regret the hardship and inconvenience faced by everyone. We appreciate the patience and continued support of our vendors, sponsors, and the community in general, the V.I. Department of Agriculture said in a prepared release.

This annual event is sponsored by the St. Thomas-St. John Agriculture and Food Fair Committee in partnership with the University of the Virgin Islands Cooperative Extension Service, Virgin Islands Department of Agriculture, V. I. Council on the Arts and the National Endowment of the Arts, Fintrac and volunteer community members.

For more information call the UVI Cooperative Extension Service at (340) 693-1080 or the Department of Agriculture at (340) 774-5182.
