This venue is okay but the parking can be a long walk in the rain. There is a small food court and this event provided a beer garden with live entertainment.

an amazing facility. Lots of bathrooms for the ladies well stocked and clean. I was impressed by the building and layout. I would suggest making the parking lots bigger and perhaps paving the overflow as it turns into a lake when it rains.

Every year there has been some kind of dog show at the Tradex that I have personally enjoyed as my dogs have been entered. Another great event is the Woman's Exposition that happens yearly. For a about $10, you can enjoy this hosting venue that is just minutes away from the Abbotsford Airport. So convenient if you are from out... More

Visited tradex to see the pet show with my wife , daughter and 4 grandchildren. The show was well done and well attended. Lots of great exhibits. Little bit of an attitude with the lady taking the passes at the door. Tended to be abrupt and non considerate. After getting by her. All was good.

I was lucky enough to win tickets to the show, so it only cost the $6 for parking. Huge crowds with lots of kids on Friday night. I overheard dealers comparing how many RVs they had sold that night (one was 8 and one was 10) so it seems to be the place to make a deal. Not a lot... More
