If the stockings are hung by the fire with care, shouldn’t the gifts inside them be just as thoughtful? If you have grown weary of the mass-produced presents and are searching for something more unique for both the naughty and nice on your list this holiday season, then the West Coast Christmas Show is the perfect place to explore. Held at the Tradex in Abbotsford the show offers families a weekend of holiday shopping and Christmas spirit!

The West Coast Christmas Show & Marketplace is Western Canada’s leading holiday season show that brings together holiday gifts, fancy foods, personal services, decor ideas, festive live florals and culinary presentations under one roof.

Entering 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 items for holiday gift shopping, entertaining and home decorating among the multitude of vendors offering unique and hard to find gift items both from artisans as well as unique manufacturers. You will find shabby chic items along with country garden Christmas accents.

The huge show features vendors selling handmade doll clothing and wooden toys, seasonal handmade ornaments, teepee play tents, hand painted silk scarves, upcycled table decor, beard balm, craft spirits, artisan fudges, lollipops and marshmallows, hand crafted doll furniture, personalized ornaments and gifts, Christmas lanterns, ugly Christmas sweaters, paintings, blown glass decor, hand crafted trendy baby and children’s accessories, reclaimed wood furniture, gluten free treats, artisan shortbread, cottonwood carvings and much more! And now you can also taste and purchase artisan BC wines and spirits from some of the lesser known producers from around the province.

PLANNING YOUR VISIT

Do you prefer a quieter shopping experience?  If so we suggest you plan your visit during the following times: Friday 2 – 9pm, Saturday 3-6 pm, Sunday 10 am- 1 pm. (These times are our traditional slower periods but are not a guarantee that past history repeats every year.)

STROLLERS

During peak times it may become difficult to navigate some crowded aisles while pushing a stroller. Ease your shopping experience by leaving your stroller or baby buggy at home or in your car or consider bringing a baby/child carrier instead of a stroller.  OR you may check the stroller at our complimentary staffed stroller check-in area, located just inside the entrance to the show.

 Many in our communities are less fortunate than most of us.   For the past 6 years, the West Coast Christmas Show has been pleased to host Abbotsford Community Services at the show.  They provide a wonderful gift wrapping service for visitors, by donation.  The donations help to fund meals on wheels for the less fortunate in the community
