How to buy cookies at the 2019 Great WinSport Cookie Exchange in Calgary

WinSport's Liana Robberecht and chef Erin Pickering join Global News Morning Calgary to discuss the 2019 Great WinSport Cookie Exchange and to bake some featured cookies.

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.

Proceeds raised from the sale of the cookies will go to Global Calgary’s fourth annual Morning of Giving in support of local charity The Magic of Christmas.

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.

The Magic of Christmas is a non-profit charity founded in 1983. The organization works with the City of Calgary social services and the Calgary Police Service to make sure Santa doesn’t miss anyone who needs a special visit during the holidays.
