Fair Fans Support 2021 PNE

The PNE Fair came to a close Sept. 6 after after 15 days of creating memories for the more than 239,000 guests. Fair fans from across BC turned out in full force to support the beloved annual tradition. This year’s PNE Fair had a smaller footprint and limited capacity to ensure a safe experience for all who attended.

PNE President and CEO Shelley Frost says seeing all the people, from attendees to employees to exhibitors and concessionaires was incredibly gratifying.

“We are so thankful for BC’s support. The PNE has always been the place British Columbians have come together after times of adversity, and when we built this year’s Fair we knew that, once again, we would be that place to gather again.”

This year’s Fair featured all the PNE’s Fair favourites including For The Love of Drag Show, the West Coast Lumberjack Show, President’s Choice SuperDogs, a modified Marketplace area, the BCAA ToonCity Stage as well as performances by some of BC’s favourite performers such as Nearly Neil, Dr. Strangelove and The Paperboys.

Planning for the 2022 PNE Fair is already underway.
