Event description

Description

A fun, exciting festival with food, drinks, entertainment, and most importantly the famous Mango Eating Contest!

Every July, Mango Melee is hosted by the St. George Village Botanical Garden. This popular summer event helps develop a greater appreciation for tropical fruits, especially mangoes, and educates the public about growing these fruits and the many ways they can be used. Mango Melee offers educational workshops as well as fun activities for children and helps raise funds for the programs the Garden presents throughout the year.

‘Mango Dis, Mango Dat’ is a food competition that has been building in popularity over the past few years. Chefs from around the Virgin Islands are invited to compete. There are four categories in which mangoes must feature prominently:

* Sips (alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks)
* Sweets (and desserts)
* Salsas (and sauces)
* Stuff (any miscellaneous foods that don’t fit in the other categories)

There are prizes awarded in all categories, and tastes of the winning entries are then available for sale. Contact the Garden for the ‘Mango Dis, Mango Dat’ entry requirements, fees and details.

The festival offers tropical fruit demonstrations and tastings, various mango contests, and the ever-popular Children's and Adult's Mango Eating Contest. Best of all, local food and drinks are available for purchase, and scores of craft vendors offer their wares. Enjoy cultural dance performances, live music and more throughout the Garden. The Botanical Garden will also have a beer garden, two full bars featuring tropical rum drinks. Plants will be offered for sale and the Garden’s Gift Store will be open. A silent auction takes place on the tropical fruits that have been on display in the Great Hall for the event. The Electric Slide on The Great Lawn ends a fun-filled day.

New this year is a VIP experience with speedy entry, a shaded tent, open bar, and free snacks for those who hold VIP tickets to the event.

GA Tickets will be priced more expensive at the door, so buy early to save.

Kids 12 and Under are Free!
