For BC Day you can get another 'Taste of the PNE' at this new distanced event

They've done drive-thru donuts, BBQs, and parades, and now the PNE is ready to invite fans to come sit down and enjoy a special BC Day event.

For their next installation in their A Taste of the PNE series, Vancouver's Pacific National Exhibition is putting on a Best of BC Celebration.

The event features outdoor dining paired with live entertainment. The physically-distanced celebration is capped at 45 people, and is being offered in time slots spread out across the afternoon and into the evening on each day of the three-day BC Day long weekend.

Tickets for the dine-in Best of BC event are $49.50 per person, and include live entertainment, a guided tour of the PNE Prize Home, a full meal, $10 discount on admission to Playland for upcoming August weekends, and two free tickets to Opening Day 2021 at the PNE Fair. 

That meal, by the way, is quite the feast: Henry's BBQ ½ Chicken, buttered Corn on the Cob, Wiggle Chips, one choice of Deep Fried Desserts, and choice of wine from Jackson-Triggs, cider from Growers, or beer from Parallel 49 Brewing and Stanley Park Brewing. (Additional drinks will be available for purchase on site.)

However, should you prefer, they will still be offering a drive-thru version of the experience. If you go that route, you will pre-purchase your food items and choose a time slot for your drive-thru pick-up. You'll also still get two free tickets to next year's opening day of the Fair.

To attend either version of A Taste of the PNE - Best of BC Celebration, guests must pre-purchase tickets online for a specific time slot.
