La Vi Domnik Expo kicks off tomorrow with local talents and authentic creations and cooking competition


The inaugural La Vi Domnik Expo, which provides a forum for local businesses and entrepreneurs to present their products and talents, is underway with a plethora of products on display.

This bustling daytime event, part of the Cadence Lypso Tribute Festival, brings together 27 small entrepreneurs from over the island, each presenting a distinctive selection of authentic, natural, and locally produced goods and services. The event’s official debut earlier this week was highlighted by Executive Director of the National Development Foundation of Dominica (NDFD) Cletus Joseph as an ode to the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation that exists locally.

He remarked that the expo which is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily at the Windsor Park Stadium Forecourt not only nurtures local talent but also promotes sustainable and healthy practices.

For the next two days, visitors may indulge in a culinary experience as they explore a wide choice of food and drink options made entirely of local products. For those with an eye for fashion, the customized handbags section boasts an impressive collection of artisanal pieces. Each handbag is meticulously crafted, reflecting the creativity and passion of the designers behind them. The leather crafts exhibit offers an equally impressive selection, featuring finely-crafted jewellery and accessories.

The locally manufactured seasonings section promises to elevate any dish with its authentic flavours, as well as the variety of offerings, carefully curated to enhance the essence of their meals.

As visitors wander through the aisles of the expo, they are drawn to the glimmering displays of jewellery that reflect the cultural heritage and artistic finesse of Dominica.

The jewellery section showcases handcrafted pieces that tell unique stories, capturing the essence of the local traditions. For those seeking a soothing respite, the organic teas and natural herbs section provides a sanctuary of relaxation. With a variety of herbal blends and teas, sourced locally and organically, visitors can find solace in every sip.

Tomorrow’s event will include the NDFD’s Creole Cooking Competition, which begins at 1 p.m.
