Buoyed by the success of Cottage Life magazine and supported by its passionate readers, in 1994, the Spring Cottage Life Show was born and has been held every spring since. In 2004, the company launched the Fall Cottage Life Show to cater to the growing popularity of year-round cottaging. In 2014, with the support of our new Cottage Life West magazine and Cottage Life’s national television channel, we launched our first show in Western Canada with the launch of the annual Edmonton Cottage Life & Cabin Show.The show is managed by a professional team of year-round Cottage Life employees. We are dedicated to selecting the best cottage-related exhibits that bring relevant products and services to our affluent market. Many attendees have been cottaging for generations; some are looking for their first lakeside property. Our exhibitors know that we produce a first-class event, and we have a very high return rate year-over-year.
