The Westcoast Wellness Show is a health and wellness event serving the Fraser Valley and Metro Vancouver regions. It takes place in Langley.
In 2023 the event happens on May 12th and 13th. It takes place, conveniently, just before Mother’s Day which is on the following day, on Sunday, May 14th. The show, consequently, is a great destination to take Mom to as an early Mother’s Day present. It’s also a terrific place to find special treats to give her on the Sunday (and/or keep for yourself)!
