If you enjoy eating holiday cookies but aren’t interested in baking them yourself, you can buy a box full of baked goods at the 2019 Great Winsport Cookie Exchange on Tuesday, Dec. 3.
Chefs from over 50 Calgary restaurants will be selling freshly baked holiday cookies from 7 a.m. until 10 a.m. at the WinSport Festival Tent.
How it works
Visit WinSport between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. on Dec. 3 to purchase a box for your cookies. Each box is $20 for 13 cookies.
Once you’ve purchased your box, you’ll be able to walk through the local vendors on-site to pick and choose what kind of cookies you want. If you decide you need more, you can purchase extra boxes on Cookie Row.
Once you have a baker’s dozen in your box, you’ll be able to return home to share your treats with family and friends (if you want to).
Express drive-through pickup option
The access gate at WinSport Hill Road will also be open from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. to allow for drive-thru express cookie pickup so that anyone who doesn’t have time to stop and shop can drive up to the WinSport Festival Tent and pay for a pre-packaged cookie box.
