The Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) has announced a smaller but much-anticipated 2021 PNE Fair, in adherence with B.C.'s Step Three "Restart Plan" protocols.
The in-person event is set to run from Aug. 21 to Sept. 6, with tickets on sale starting July 2.
PNE President and CEO Shelley Frost says the decision was made after careful consideration in light of increasing vaccination rates and declining coronavirus (COVID-19) case counts
“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,” Frost said.
“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.”
Highlights of the 2021 PNE Fair include the fan favourite President's Choice SuperDogs, nightly live music featuring local 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.
