The Virgin Islands Police Department is ready to keep everyone safe at the 2024 Agriculture Food Fair. Here is some information for individuals who will visit AgriFest 2024.

Traffic

  • Motorists who would prefer to avoid the traffic during AgriFest can utilize the Melvin H. Evans Highway or Midland Road (Route 72).
  • Individuals visiting the fairgrounds are advised that there will be crossing guards to assist with traffic and pedestrians traversing the area.

Guards will be stationed at the eastern intersection- Golden Grove intersection (Route 70) and Lieutenant Clark Memorial Drive (Route 669), the southern entrance (Main/Central entrance) and the western section near Lower Love Service station.

The public is asked to slow down and be alert as pedestrians will be traversing the roadway.

Parking

Accessible parking spaces are located in the eastern and western parking lots. General

parking is in the eastern, southern and western parking lots of the AgriFest grounds.

Children

If children have been separated from their parents, parents are urged to report to the Virgin

Islands Police Mobile Command, located near the bridge to seek assistance in reuniting with

their child(ren). Parents can also approach any law enforcement officer for assistance.

The Virgin Islands Police Department wishes everyone a SAFE and FUN experience at the

2024 Agriculture Food Fair.
