ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - The BVI Food & Wine Festival (BVIFWF) which was slated for April 2024 has been postponed to February 14-21, 2025.

However, the planned Ralph T. & Edris O'Neal FoundaOon Dinner in support of the H. Lavity StouS Community College (HLSCC) Culinary Program will still be held on May 11th at the Rosewood Little Dix Bay Resort (RLDBR). It will be a five-course tasting menu where each course will be prepared by a different chef.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, this year’s launch of the BVI Food & Wine Festival had to be postponed. However, we are excited that we can still host the Foundation dinner. In addition, many of the international chefs, connoisseurs and sommelier who were scheduled to take part in this year’s BVIFWF have confirmed their participation in next year’s festival,” says Abigail O’Neal, owner and organizer of the festival.

In support of this very important event, the chefs have agreed to come to the BVI to participate in the Foundation Dinner. Featured chefs will be Michael Ferrero, VP of Food & Beverage at the Tavistock Restaurant Por^olio and former ExecuOve Chef at Michelin Restaurants; Chef Freddy Money who is a Culinary Director at Tavistock Restaurant CollecOon that oversees Atlas and The Garden Room at the St Regis Atlanta; Chef Brent LeSsome, alumni of the HLSCC’s very own Culinary Program; Josie Smith Malave former Bravo Top Chef compeOtor and bringing it all together will be RLDBR ExecuOve Chef Francisco Sanabria.

Tickets for the dinner are $300.00 per person and $500.00 per couple and can be purchased at or call: +1 284 499 0581. The charter boat for the event will leave Tortola at 4:30pm and return following the event.

The postponement of the six-day festival allows the team to further develop and enhance the plans for the event and gives travelers more time to book their trip to the BVI. The multi-island event will be hosted on Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, and Virgin Gorda, giving visitors an experience like no other - only in the BVI can one truly island hop to attend events.

We would like to thank our partners for their support of the festival and this year’s Foundation Dinner: The Ralph T. & Edris O’Neal FoundaOon, Rosewood LiSle Dix Bay Resort, H. Lavity StouS Community College, Caribbean Cellars, Proudly African, GWA, Road Town Wholesale, Botella, and the BVI Food & Wine FesOval.
