The West Coast Christmas Show at Tradex Exhibition Centre in Abbotsford is Western Canada's leading holiday-season show and brings together under one roof holiday décor, gifts, food, personal services, and festive seminars.
Also presented for your enjoyment are holiday cooking demonstrations by Chef Anthony Sedlak, host of Food Network's The Main and author Troy Townsin, who will pair Christmas appetizers with B.C. wines.
Here are some of the other people and activities you'll find on stage:
- Norman Strim, chef and founder of Nonna Pias Gourmet Sauces, demonstrates seasonal menu ideas for his line of gourmet sauces;
- Wayne Louie from Orchistra Floral Works shows you how to care for your fresh seasonal greenery and create stunning centerpieces for your festive holiday dinners; and
- 99 Nursery & Florist will once again be present, with an even larger display and selection than last year.
Don't miss the chance to view and judge fully decorated Christmas trees set up by local charities in the Festival of Trees Hall. Musician Doug Towle plays New World flamenco-style holiday music tunes.
If you want to go home with something that is truly one-of-a-kind, then seek out the new Select Artisan logo in exhibit booths. This logo identifies local artisans with unique hand-made gift items.
Complimentary cheese seminars are presented by the Dairy Farmers of Canada, just in time for you to learn how to host the perfect wine-and-cheese party. Cheers!
