West Coast Christmas Show returns to Tradex in Abbotsford

Event runs Friday through Sunday

The West Coast Christmas Show and Marketplace returns to Tradex on Friday.

Every year more than 18,000 shoppers take in the show, which brings together holiday gifts, fancy foods, artisan creations, decor ideas, festive culinary presentations and floral demonstrations, all under one roof.

The three-day shopping extravaganza features over 200 vendors – of which 140 are artisans. The show features live presentations to meet the needs of visitors’ holiday entertaining, decorating and gift giving.

Family entertainment is provided by live Christmas music performed by local bands, choirs and carolers plus a huge working model train setup.

In Santa’s Workshop, children can write letters to Santa and decorate their own fresh-baked Christmas cookie. Triumph Acrobatic will be on site in Santa’s workshop to demonstrate and work with children through circus arts such as aerials, tumbling and trampoline.

There will also be pictures with Santa and Mrs. Clause.

As you enter through a huge array of fresh plants, floral and holiday decor for your home to the sounds of live Christmas music, you will discover new ideas and products for holiday gift shopping, entertaining and home decorating.

Shoppers will find a range of artisan goods, clothing, furniture, food and more.

The Home For The Holidays Stage will feature local chefs and designers offering hands-on demonstrations and holiday cooking, entertaining, floral designs and seasonal home decor ideas.

The West Coast Christmas Show and Marketplace runs Friday to Sunday at Tradex. Tickets are $8 for adults and $7 for seniors, with discounts if purchased online. Children 16 and under get in free. Parking is also free.
