Other than Christmas day, this is probably the only other time that Queens Park is this packed.
Agrofest is an exhibition put on by the Barbados Agricultural Society and The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development. There isn’t just a series of exhibits for farmers and agricultural enthusiasts but the livestock competitions are awesome and everyone should watch. While the livestock is mostly there to be judged, families can go right up to the fencing to see black belly sheep, cows and pigs etc.
They also have chicks that have been dyed in different colours and both adults and kids line up for this.
There will be tons of food left, right and centre, cooking demos, discussions on renewable energy, clothing stalls, locally-made shoes and even jewellery.
There will be a separate section for kids with rides and live performances. Last year Gabby and Grynner performed so we are keen to find out who is performing this time around. There is definitely something there for everyone and definitely something to be learned.
They usually have over 250 exhibits and last year’s numbers showed that over the three-day event, there were over 60,000 visitors – 60,000 people can’t be wrong.
February 24th – 26th
