About the Food Show

Celebrating over 155 years of bountiful Fraser Valley harvests and food processing

The Fraser Valley Food Show is showcasing the magic of food and cooking at the Tradex Exhibition Centre in Abbotsford, BC. Taste and purchase food from local artisan growers & producers and condiments, spices and a variety of hard to find food and beverage products. Enjoy the celebrity chef demonstrations, sausage making competitions, cheese and wine seminars, Bite of the Valley participating restaurants and the Grapes and Hops wine/beer/spirits tasting pavilion. 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.

Come for lunch and stay for dinner! The Fraser Valley Food Show presents the Bite of The Valley restaurant pavilion. The chefs of favorite restaurants  from in and around the Valley will serve up their signature recipes. For a nominal charge ($1 - $6.00 inc. GST) per item visitors will be able to savor the flavors of numerous eateries.

Beer, wine and spirits will be well represented in the Tasting Pavilion where visitors can sip and taste a wide selection of beverages. The Grapes and Hops Stage will feature presentations and tastings by numerous local and regional beer and wine experts.

While at the Fraser Valley Food Show, visitors will also enjoy shopping in the marketplace of over 100 exhibit booths. Producers, manufacturers, retailers and food artisans will showcase a wide assortment of unique products for eating, drinking, cooking, entertaining, and outfitting a kitchen. Visitors to the Fraser Valley Food Show will especially enjoy the variety of locally grown and produced specialty food items that are not usually found in grocery stores and supermarkets. The bounty of The Valley under one roof!

Three years agor 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!!!  Don't miss it.
