Beginning in 2001, the TASTE OF ST. CROIX has celebrated the special spirit and flavor of our island by pooling culinary artisans from more than 40+ local chefs, restaurants, and farms. This premier event, the brainchild of two local restaurateurs, began TWENTY YEARS AGO as a way to showcase the diverse and delectable cuisine and culture of St. Croix with its influences from all over the Caribbean and the world. Today, the TASTE is known nationally and abroad as one of the finest food and wine events in the Caribbean and continues to attract thousands of guests including international winemakers, rum distillers, beer brewers, and celebrity chefs. For one night, attendees drink in the culture and vibes of St. Croix and walk away with memories that keep them coming back year after year. TASTE OF ST. CROIX is a night of true elegance, art, culture, laughter…and a spectacularly good time.
