St. Croix Food & Wine Experience
Hailed as one of the ‘Ten Best International Food and Wine Festivals’ by Forbes Travel, the St. Croix Food and Wine Experience showcases the diverse cuisine and wines available on St. Croix. Each April, this event sees foodies and epicureans the world over converge on St. Croix for a prestigious week-long festival that celebrates the joy of food and wine while raising funds for some of the island’s charities. This well-anticipated, well-attended event series engages local chefs, celebrity chefs, cooking show personalities and top winemakers from the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, California, Florida, and abroad to showcase their talents while promoting their products. Even more incredible is that the event itself is a fundraiser designed to support The St. Croix Foundation, a community organization.

The event series also impacts and supports local culinary, hospitality and tourism programs. Now celebrating its 25th Anniversary, St. Croix Foundation for Community Development is the leading advocate for improved governance in our community and, since our inception, has served as both a grantmaker and operating foundation to address severe socioeconomic conditions in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
“We are not an average community foundation. As a place-based operating foundation, the impact of your investment is indisputable and measurable, because it enables us to dedicate our resources toward solving some of the most intractable problems facing our Territory. We are currently working intimately with the VIPD and private donors to tackle crime by developing a new state-of-the-art surveillance system; we are collaborating with donors and social service organizations on the most comprehensive approach to homelessness ever undertaken in our Community; and we are spearheading the largest, focused convening of nonprofits around strategic partnerships for greater efficiency and sustainability in the nonprofit sector. We serve as both a fund manager and accountability partner as we advance a new format of philanthropy that has proven to be a real game-changer!” – The St. Croix Foundation
