The nightly entertainment package for this year’s Denbigh Agricultural, Industrial and Food Show promises to be very exciting.

An impressive line-up of artistes, spanning various musical genres, will perform over the event’s three days, from July 30 to August 1, at the Denbigh Showground in Clarendon.

Former Digicel Rising Star contestant Noddy Virtue will kick things off when he performs during the National Farm Queen coronation on Saturday, July 30, starting at 6:00 p.m.

Another big attraction will be the Hi-Pro-sponsored Denbigh Gospel Extravaganza on Sunday, July 31.

Heading the line-up are renowned gospel singers Carlene Davis and Junior Tucker.

They will be supported by Kevin Downswell, Latoya H-D, Chozenn, Anischa Judah and Rondell Positive. Backing them will be On The Shout Band. Digicel Brand Ambassador, Romain Virgo, and the top-10 finalists in the 2016 Digicel’s Rising Star competition, are among the performers who will bring the curtains down on the final night on Monday, August 1.

The Denbigh Agricultural, Industrial and Food Show is a hallmark event that has been embedded in the unique culture of the Jamaican farmer since 1952.

It is staged annually by the Jamaica Agricultural Society (JAS) as part of the country’s Independence and Emancipation celebrations. This year’s 64th staging will be held under the theme ‘Grow What You Eat… Eat What You Grow – Through Climate-Smart Agriculture’.

Gates will open daily at 8:00 a.m. and admission is $900 on day one and $1,000 on days two and three for adults and $400 for children.
