Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic, the Nevis Mango Festival which was slated for July 3rd to the 5th, was cancelled and a virtual event was held in its place.
The VONNEWSLINE contacted Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Nevis Tourism Authority (NTA), Ms. Jadine Yarde, for feedback on how the virtual event went.
The event featured a variety of mango based dishes, and Cooking Master class featuring UK Iron Chef Judy Joo, Mango taste testing, and more. Ms. Yarde and her team ensured that the full experience of the festival was felt in its 7th year anniversary, as the other previous years.
When asked by the VONNEWSLINE if the virtual experience will become part of the norm for future festivals, this was her response.
