Ever since 2007, there has been an event called “Shopaganza” at Westmount Congregation twice a year – April and November. The event, basically, is a trade show and it has attracted all kinds of vendors and the interest of the public as well.

Shopaganza started out in just one room of the church, and now has grown to use all rooms, with a waiting list of vendors every time the event is held.

In November, Westmount was unable to host this popular event due to construction stemming from a leaky roof. Although Shopaganza was held, it was moved to another church.

Westmount is happy to announce that on April 7, Shopaganza will return to its original home, with over 35 vendors spanning all sorts of businesses. There will be home-based businesses alongside craftspeople. You can expect to find everything from footcare to makeup, woodworking, home décor, cleaning products and essential oils. As well, check down the hall or venture to the Sunday School rooms downstairs for an old-fashioned "quilt turning" and homemade fudge. The “church ladies” will also host a bake table with all kinds of goodies.

Please come out and welcome Shopaganza back to Westmount. This is an area tradition that you won’t want to miss. This will be the 22nd Shopaganza. Admission is always free, as is parking, and there are door prizes, too. The event runs on Saturday, April 7 from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
