West Coast Christmas Show – Tradex


West Coast Christmas Show

What a wonderful show that helped anyone who visited get into the Holiday spirit!

From the moment you entered the show the sights, sounds and smells brought you into a Christmas wonderland.



As you walked through the festival of trees you could hear the sounds of Christmas filling the room…. Then you might have been mezmorized by the smells of Christmas flavours or the twinkle of Christmas crafts……

The show had a little bit of everything for all visitors….a Christmas train ride or pictures with Santa for the kids maybe?
Gifts for your family or friends? The organizers did their best to bring in a great mix of vendors and entertainment.
Once again the Dairy Farmers of Canada put on a great show featuring Reg Hendrickson, a trainer/consultant with Dairy Farmers of Canada that guided the guests through a ‘sensing’ of six different varieties of cheese at each seminar sharing his knowledge of the characteristics of soft, semi-soft, firm and delicious blue cheeses. He provided some tips on how to store your cheese and how to serve it as well as gave advice on perfect pairings with cheese, wine and beer.


There was approximately 40 different cheeses from 11 cheese makers, and seven regional cheeses and four national ones.
Let’s say that Reg filed his space to standing room only!

Once again there was a “Home for the Holidays stage” which featured a mix of holiday craft and decoration tips as well as some tasty recipe / menu ideas showcased by Chef Ann Kirsebom- Executive Chef of the The Toast of the Town Cuisine, a successful, full service catering company in Vancouver, British Columbia. Chef Ann also had a booth at the show featuring wonderful sauces and spreads…

Or BBQ master – Brian Misko of House of Q. Both shared stories and wonderful recipes and tips to help warm the hearts and tummies of our families and friends over the holidays….. Brian and his lovely wife had a booth as well showcasing some highly acclaimed award-winning sauces as well as House of Q’s signature rub…..


Whether you we’re looking for a reason to get into the holiday spirit, buy a special gift, find a new holiday tasty treat, learn how to decorate or simply just relax and enjoy the surroundings…..you were sure to find it at The West Coast Christmas Show……


Holiday smiles all around…….


When I was done for the day it was great to hop on the Trolly provided by the Vancouver Trolly company back to my complimentary parking stall….
I will be sure to attend next years show and I urge you all to do the same!

  1. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the
    web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just
    don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
