Also, don’t miss two brand new areas on the show floor: The Living Garden and the Spring Craft Market.

Throughout the three days of the show The Celebrity Stage will feature top chefs and featured presentations. This year’s headliner celebrity chef is Bob Blumer, Food network’s Surreal Gourmet.

Celebrity chefs, popular local restaurants, wineries, food and beverage manufacturers, cookbook authors, retailers, artisans, and many others from the culinary world will come together for a three day public extravaganza at the TRADEX Exhibition Centre. The Fraser Valley Food Show encompasses unique food experiences, opportunities to learn behind-the-scenes culinary magic from professional chefs, dynamic entertainment through celebrity chef cooking demonstrations, diverse food, beverage and cooking related exhibits; and of course fantastic shopping opportunities.

Three years ago we have also launched the Gluten-Free Living Show in response to the overwhelming number of people seeking gluten-free products.  This is  the first time such an event has been organized in the Fraser Valley. The first two Gluten Free Living shows were fantastic!!!  This year the GF exhibitors will fill half the show floor!!!
