Find your ticket to summer at the annual Spring Cottage Life Show, happening from March 23-26 at the International Centre in Mississauga. The four-day event offers prospective, new and longtime cottagers, alongside those who simply love the cottage lifestyle, the latest news and information on docks, innovative construction products, and eco-friendly solutions. Attendees can shop exclusive offers from more than 500  exhibitors and meet with builders, contractors, and exhibitors to plan their next cottage project. The Spring Cottage Life Show also offers stylish decor, arts and crafts, food and entertaining ideas for your next summer celebration with friends and family at the lake. Tickets are on sale now at cottagelife.com/shows.


A big draw at the Spring Cottage Life Show is the inspiring, educational seminars and demonstrations from experts across a variety of topics. Experts on the Main Stage, sponsored by Beaver Homes and Cottages, include gardening aficionado and TV personality Frank “Frankie Flowers” Ferragine, professional contractor and television host, Michael Holmes Jr. and Cottage Life magazine’s editor, Michelle Kelly, who will share helpful tips on how to live alongside wildlife at the lake. While at the Spring Cottage Life Show, visitors can also learn from Peter Lillico, leading cottage succession planning lawyer, on how to protect their investment with a carefully mapped out succession plan.


The Spring Cottage Life Show brings the pages of the Cottage Life magazine to life. While at the show, visitors can check out the Cottage Life Booth to meet with the magazine’s editorial team and get their cottage questions answered by the publication’s team of experts. Visitors can also take advantage of a special Cottage Life magazine subscription offer and sign-up for their latest e-newsletter Family Matters, a five-part series designed to kickstart succession planning. The show is a family-friendly event, with attractions such as an inflatable planetarium that offers kids the opportunity to get up close and personal with the constellations and learn about stars, planets, moons, comets, galaxies, and more. Kids will also have fun scaling the rock climbing wall, “roasting” marshmallows by the campfire, and reeling in the catch of the day in the pond featured at the show.


Back this spring by popular demand is beverage sampling at the Dock Party and cooking demos on the Cottage Kitchen, sponsored by Foodland. Chef, TV personality and author  Jo Lusted will cook up a flavourful croque madame breakfast bake, and bavette steak sandwich. Chef Thomas Armstrong, Celebrity MasterChef, Pino DiCerbo and Christian Pritchard, Executive Chef, Aurora Foods, will also be in the Cottage Kitchen throughout the show to share how to whip up cottage-friendly, crowd pleasing dishes.
