experience the excitement The Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre (AESC) has been home to many of the big touring acts in the past year, including Toby Keith, Sarah McLachlan, Professional Bull Riding and the Harlem Globetrotters. In the coming months, it’s going to host Maroon 5, KISS, Cirque Du Soliel, Celtic Thunder and Disney on Ice.

When it’s not hosting a Christian youth event like Historymakers or a festival like Vaisakhi, the arena is welcoming hockey fans to enjoy some fast-paced AHL games. The AESC, located at 33800 King Rd., is home to The Abbotsford Heat, the farm team of the Calgary Flames, that plays approximately 40 games a season in Abbotsford.

The team just wrapped up its second year. Seven-thousand fans can be seated in the arena for a hockey game, while entertainment performances can seat 8,500. “This building was built for the community and the surrounding regions,” said AESC general manager, Jason Blumenfeld. “We want to bring something for

every aspect of the community. We strive for the AESC to be a fabric of the city of Abbotsford.” In keeping with that mandate, the AESC recently implemented a walking program, inviting locals to exercise in the stadium. Since opening in May 2009, the arena has also hosted Reba McEntire, the Tragically Hip, ZZ Top and events like monster trucks and wrestling.

Abbotsford is a university town Home to the main campus of the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV), Abbotsford reaps the benefits of having a postsecondary institution. UFV and Abbotsford have grown together since 1974. The school now serves more than 16,000 students, most of them in Abbotsford. UFV’s operating budget is about $100 million a year, with a major economic, social and cultural

impact on this community. UFV provides a wide range of educational options. Having a university in the community helps attract new business, and offers many benefits. There are often lectures, workshops, conferences and sporting events for the public to attend. In addition, UFV alumni are found in every sector of the workforce in the Fraser Valley. UFV and the City of Abbotsford

are working more closely together than ever on two exciting projects. The city is working to create a lively university district, adjacent to the Abbotsford campus. And UFV recently announced a new spinoff location in the Clearbrook Library. This centrally located campus will help connect UFV directly with the community, municipal services, and local businesses.

Want to be a ‘top chef’ in your own home?

and a good option for a unique date night.

All it takes is a handful of good, fresh ingredients and a willingness to explore your senses. But to get you started, there are plenty of cooking classes around town ready to help you with your culinary adventures. Neatfreakz Kitchens has been offering classes for the past four years, bringing in chefs from all over the country, including Anthony Sedlak from the Food Network’s popular show The Main.

“It’s fun to do something different than go sit at a restaurant,” she says. Plus, you’ll be taking home those kitchen skills to recreate that date over and over again.

Sales clerk Rebecca Clark has taken in a few classes at the Abbotsford store’s kitchen, which can hold up to 23 people.

For a full list of upcoming dates and prices, check out each set of classes on the web, neatfreakz.ca and leppfarmmarket.com

“It’s a nice night out,” she says,

Lepp Farm Market has joined in the fun, too. They have classes planned well into the summer, with themes like cooking with fire, cooking with whiskey, and traditional canning lessons. Chefs there include Chef Dez, Rob Feenie and Anthony Wotton.
