12 PM to 9 PM  |   10 AM to 6 PM  |   11 AM to 5 PM @ TRADEX, Abbotsford


Thank you for your interest in the Fraser Valley Food Show,  Unfortunately there will not be a 2018 event held at TRADEX this year due to the lack of suitable date options within the show season,  which do not conflict with other major events.  

We, as producers of the largest food events in the province: EAT! Vancouver, CityTV’s Taste of the City, BC Foodservice Expo, BC Hotel & Pub Expo and many others, are now drawing on our past experiences and looking towards a future event in the region, which will  involve new alliances with closely related industries.   Our intent is to launch in the near future. When we are ready, we will be in touch with everyone, but in the meantime if the contact information we have on hand for you should change, please send us an update to: [email protected]

Thank you for your patience and  understanding.  We look forward to working with you very soon.

In the meantime perhaps you may wish to exhibit at our West Coast Christmas Show on Nov 16 - 18, 2018.

The market for gluten-free products experienced an annual growth of about 48%. According to a survey conducted consumers who purchase gluten-free products do so for varying reasons.
