(Toronto, ON – October 2, 2019) – Whether you’re looking to warm up your cottage with fall décor and tasty recipes, or get a head start on planning big or small renovations for the next spring season, cottagers are sure to find inspiration at the 2019 Fall Cottage Life Show. With 250 exhibitors and numerous speakers and stage presentations, the show is a one-stop destination dedicated to educating and inspiring cottagers on how to create their dream getaway. From protecting your cottage from the effects of climate change to small renovations and fun DIY projects, there is something for everyone at the show. The 2019 Fall Cottage Life Show returns to The International Centre in Mississauga from Friday, Oct. 25 – Sunday, Oct. 27. Tickets are available now on the Cottage Life website here.
With climate change at the forefront of everyone’s minds, attendees are invited to hear Leslie Garrett, author and contributing writer to Cottage Life, in conversation on the main stage discussing how climate change has impacted cottage country. From fewer songbirds to algae blooms and devastating floods, Leslie will be on hand to offer advice on how cottagers can prepare and protect their retreats from intense flooding and weather disasters before they strike.
Special features this year also include live demonstrations and appearances from Cottage Coach’s Adam Holman, who will be on the main stage creating a distressed serving tray perfect for indoor entertaining. Uber-cottager and recipe developer for Cottage Life, Tony Armstrong, will also take to the stage to cook up a healthy and sustainable snack that will surely “wow” the dinner party.
For cottagers planning a significant rebuild, a small renovation or simply looking to enjoy their retreats year-round, the 2019 Fall Cottage Life Show has everything from boats to docks to furniture, arts and décor, building products and more.
