Events and Activities:
A farm-to-table, educational culinary activity for young people, led by local Chef Frank Pugliese. This excursion will provide 80 students and administrators the opportunity to tour a farm, learn about the variety of produce, and enjoy a three-course meal made using the local ingredients harvested from the farm.
Frederiksted Waterfront Entertainment and Food Truck Festival:
This event, produced in partnership with the Frederiksted Economic Development Association, features multiple food trucks prior to a concert highlighting leading Virgin Islands musical talent.
This culinary journey to the middle of St. Croix will commence with a rum tour – one stop at Captain Morgan and the other at the Cruzan Rum Distillery – followed by an excursion to sample the cuisine of three mid-island restaurants.
This fusion of food and fellowship will feature performances from local gospel groups and choirs at several venues.
A night of entertainment and fine dining experiences, produced in partnership with the Christiansted Restaurant and Retail Association. A musical “jump-up”, bartender demonstrations and restaurant specials will be presented.
In 2016 DINE VI will expand into a month-long event including restaurant weeks on all three islands, St. Croix, St. John and St. Thomas.
