More than 100,000 persons are expected to visit the Denbigh Agricultural and Industrial Show this year from the local, regional and international arena.
Launched under the theme: ‘Grow What We Eat and Eat What We Grow’, the show promises to provide a number of new as well as traditional features, which patrons can enjoy.
In addition to the traditional activities, such as the farmers’ market, and the crop and livestock competitions, patrons visiting this year’s show can expect to see a large horticultural exhibition, a Chef’s competition, the Denbigh treasure hunt, a kiddies village and the crowning of the National Farm Queen, an event which has not taken place at the show in years.
Speaking at the Denbigh launch on June 21, at the Knutsford Court Hotel in Kingston, Senator Norman Grant, President of the Jamaica Agricultural Society (JAS) said that the JAS, through its Denbigh Show, would continue to promote the use of Jamaican products, thus the rationale for this year’s theme.
“The eat Jamaican campaign will continue to be a major focus at the show as we (JAS) emphasize the importance of supporting the local agricultural sector,” Senator Grant said.
The show will be held from July 30 to August 1 at the Denbigh Showground in Clarendon.
