St. Croix Food & Wine Experience:
Food, Fun, and Philanthropy!
Once listed as one the top 10 international food and wine events by ForbesTravel.com, the St. Croix Food & Wine Experience is the annual benefit of St. Croix Foundation for Community Development and has raised over $1.5 million since its inception.
But just as important as the critical dollars for the Foundation’s operations is the sense of community and philanthropy that the event series imbues into every tasty morsel and every sip of wine. In early 2020, just as the Foundation was gearing up for another great year, COVID-19 forced us to cancel the benefit and as the pandemic continued, 2021 as well.
But we look forward to more stable conditions and the return of the Experience, because while raising awareness around the importance of holisticandcollaborative community development,our benefithas also helped to bring in millions of dollars of revenue into the Virgin Islands economy. During the weekend series of events, shops on St. Croix are busy, hotels are full, restaurants bustle, and distributors and wholesalers see a boost in sales. As a model of the power of public, private, and civic sector partnerships, the Experience consists of a broad range of events, from a community barbeque to an exquisite and intimate dining experience that has helped to build St. Croix’s brand as a culinary destination.
Whether you’d like to volunteer, serve up your best recipes or beverages, or sponsor the event, there are so many ways to get involved! As a destination event, St. Croix Food & Wine Experience attracts a network of diverse community members, celebrity wine and culinary professionals, as well as the best local chefs, bartenders and baristas, and connoisseurs from near and far. It’s a great place to network, learn about community, and support the Foundation’s broad-based, territory-wide work!
