The West Coast Christmas Show, a three day consumer event visited by over 17,000 holiday shoppers each year features over 200 vendors - of which 140 are artisans. The show features live presentations to meet the needs of visitors’ holiday entertaining, decorating and gift giving. Family entertainment is provided by live Christmas music performed by local bands, choirs and carolers plus a huge working model train setup. In Santa's Workshop children may learn model making, create their own sand-art, write letters to Santa, decorate their own fresh baked Christmas cookie and there will be story time by local children's book writers.. Pictures with Santa, of course.
At least 16 select artisan wineries and distilleries will be on-site sampling and selling their products, many of which are nearly impossible to find in local liquor and wine stores.
