Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the West Coast Christmas Craft Show is not happening at the Tradex Centre in 2020. The event is not going to be held in-person at all this year, as it is set to happen online instead.

It’s put on by Executive Events Productions Inc. and general admission usually costs around $10.
West Coast Christmas Show
The West Coast Christmas Show is a pretty good event. It’s a big production that usually takes place at the Tradex Centre at 1190 Cornell Street in Abbotsford (which is right beside the Abbotsford Airport).
The trade show was scheduled to happen on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of November 20 to 22 in 2020. Hours of operation would have been from 1:00 to 9:00 pm on the Friday, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on the Saturday, and from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm on the Sunday. However, event organizers have decided not to go ahead with an in-person event in 2020, and have instead decided to host an online version. Dates and details are to be confirmed.
In normal years, admission to the West Coast Christmas Show is usually about $10 for adults and $9 for seniors, so slightly more than most other holiday markets in the Lower Mainland. If you’re in the Abbotsford area on the weekend of November 20 to 22 and you like Christmas shopping and artisan markets, it’s typically worth checking out. We went a couple of years ago and enjoyed it.
