This beloved and fun-filled B.C. summer tradition is coming back in an unforgettable way

The PNE Fair is coming back for 2020 with a whole new ‘Drive-Thru Fair Experience’ from August 22 to August 30!

For its 2020 edition, the PNE Fair will be hosting “A Taste of the PNE: Drive-Thru Fair Experience”, offering the most fun for the whole family — on four tires! Celebrating the very best of the PNE, this drive-thru expedition through the PNE grounds at Hastings Park aims to give guests a sampling of all of their Fair favourites from the comfort of their own vehicles. 

Starting this weekend, the PNE fair will run from August 22 through to August 30 — and will be closed on Monday, August 24 — from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. 

Due to the province’s current restrictions on large gatherings, the PNE has gotten creative by test-driving the drive-thru format with weekend food and entertainment events, including a mini donuts drive-thru and the Canada Day "reverse parade", to support the PNE’s food vendors and performers.
