About Cottage Life

Cottage Life magazine has been the leading media source for all things cottage for more than 30 years. The magazine now reaches 1.4 million readers every issue, and has received more than 200 national and international awards, including Magazine of the Year by the National Magazine Awards. The success of Cottage Life magazine quickly translated into popular consumer shows, digital media, and a television channel – all under the Cottage Life name. In 2017, Cottage Life was awarded MultiPlatform Brand of the Year by Magazines Grand Prix.

The Cottage Life Shows

Created to bring the pages of Cottage Life magazine to life, our consumer show portfolio includes the Spring Cottage Life Show (Toronto, est. 1994), Fall Cottage Life Show (Toronto, est. 2004), and Edmonton Cottage Life & Cabin Show (est. 2014). These shows collectively attract 60,000 visitors and 1,000 exhibiting companies each year, creating the ultimate marketplace for recreational property owners to connect with the special businesses that serve this market.

For 2018, Cottage Life is thrilled to add the Ottawa Cottage Life & Backyard Show to the family. Formerly the Ottawa Cottage and Backyard Show, the show was founded in 2001 and has grown to include more than 275 exhibitors. Bringing the Cottage Life brand to the Ottawa show is an opportunity to leverage Cottage Life’s expertise, and engage directly with cottagers and outdoor enthusiasts in eastern Ontario and western Quebec.
