First introduced in 1988, this annual festival is a celebration of the tradition of pineapple farming in Eleuthera, and honors the pineapple farmers for their outstanding contributions to the community. It is designed around the harvesting of pineapples, to create awareness of this once lucrative and important agricultural heritage.
Bahamians and visitors from all walks of life come together to enjoy and participate in pineapple-themed activities, such as a pineapple eating contest, pineapple cooking contest, old time pineapple crazy sports, 40-mile pineapple cycling classic, a triathlon, plaiting of the pineapple pole, Little Miss Pineapple Pageant, non-stop pineapple party time with live entertainment, beverage treats, and much more. Venue is Gregory Town, North Eleuthera, where an abundance of pineapple is found.
