First staging of JVD Fish & Fungi Frenzy postponed
The first annual Jost Van Dyke Fish and Fungi Frenzy slated for tomorrow has been postponed until further notice.
This is according to the BVI Tourist Board & Film Commission (BVITB)—the organiser of the event.
“We did not get the full support of the businesses on Jost Van Dyke because it is so close to the Old Years Night and a lot of people are preparing for that so we have to reschedule for 2022,” Tourism Director McCoy told BVI News.
“We don’t have a current date in mind but as soon as we decide on when it will be held, we will be sure to let the people know about it,” McCoy said.
With the success of the recent Anegada Lobster Fest, the Tourist Board had hoped to ride the momentum into the Fish and Fungi Frenzy which was expected to bring much needed economic activity to the Jost Van Dyke community on December 30.
The event was expected to follow a similar format to Lobster Fest by encouraging patrons to explore the island’s different food establishments and sampling mouth-watering fish dishes while exploring the beauty of Jost Van Dyke, which many locals describe as the ‘fete island’.
