2021 PNE Fair set for safe, exciting in-person return

THE Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) on Wednesday announced the return of the smaller 2021 PNE Fair, in adherence with Step 3 Restart Plan protocols for an in-person event from August 21 to September 6, with tickets on sale starting July 2.

“After carefully considering a new way forward in light of increasing vaccination rates and declining COVID-19 case counts, we are extremely pleased to welcome visitors to the 2021 PNE Fair,” said PNE President and CEO Shelley Frost. “The PNE team have worked tirelessly to plan for a reduced capacity fair with a more limited scope that still delivers the fun that people have come to expect, and to that end we have been successful. This is good news not only for our staff, exhibitor and concessionaire partners, but also for the many young, first-time employees who rely on the PNE to pay for school or support their families. The PNE Fair has been a landmark cultural event for generations, and we are excited to share it with British Columbians once again.”

The summer event will return with a wide variety of entertainment and food options for the entire family. Highlights of the 2021 PNE Fair include the fan favourite President’s Choice SuperDogs, nightly live music featuring local favourite artists on the Revel District Stage, the classic West Coast Lumberjack Show, and a nightly pyro musical finale, where the skies will erupt with fantastic pyrotechnics and supercharged live performers. With limited tickets available each day, the 2021 PNE Fair will look a little different, and will focus on offering the essential attractions that many visitors know and love.
