    EXHIBITORS: 

    The Cochrane Trade Show is the largest annual event in town!

    Our last Trade Show was another sell-out and we no less for 2018.  This year's show will take place on Saturday, May 5th and Sunday, May 6th 2018 at the Spray Lake Sawmills Family Sports Centre. Check back often for updates on what you will see at this year’s show!

    As a consumer show, the event has over 140 local exhibits ranging from home based businesses to products and services offered at retail stores. The show has attractions for all ages, and many interactive displays, as well as family entertainment.  Public admission grows each year with expectations of 2800 to 3000+ people visiting the show.  We even hold a Silent Auction which is another great way to showcase your business' products or services.

    Various non-profit organizations will also be showcasing their talents and ways they support the community at large. If you are interested in volunteering with any of these special groups, here is your opportunity to find out more about each of them.

    No matter what aspect of the show you participate in, it is sure to be a great experience for everyone!

    Come out to the show this year and help support the businesses in the Town of Cochrane.
