Yes, you need to set your clock. In just 5 days, tickets go on sale for the Taste of St. Croix, the annual food extravaganza that draws about 1500 people to the beachfront of the Divi Carina Bay Resort for a night of sampling, sipping and music. The event is always a sell-out, so if there’s any hope of snaring a ticket, you will have to set your clock. On March 23 at 3:00pm is when Taste of St. Croix tickets go on sale online at http://www.stxfoodandwine.com/buy-tickets/.
This year’s Taste of St. Croix is Thursday, April 19th. About sixty of the island’s best chefs, bakers, chocolatiers and caterers leave their kitchens and set up stands on the Divi Carina Bay’s beachfront, offering samplings of their specialties under the stars. While guests sample and sip – wineries, breweries and rum distilleries also participate – a panel of renowned celebrity chefs from the States are hard at work determining prize-winning entries.
The Taste of St. Croix is the centerpiece to the six-day St. Croix Food & Wine Experience, which includes other food oriented activities such as Cuisine on the Green, a tasty golf outing, a tasting “crawl” through historic Christiansted, and a sunset jazz BBQ on the pier in Fredriksted. It’s a great way to experience the local food scene and the island’s scenery itself. For the full schedule of events, visit http://www.stcroixfoodandwine.com/.
Set your calendar and your clock. April in St. Croix is sunny and warm. It’s also delicious and philanthropic. Tickets benefit the St. Croix Foundation.
