Scaled-down PNE Fair returning in August – BC


The Pacific National Exhibition will return in August.

A pared-down version of the fair will run from Aug. 21 to Sept. 6.

The PNE will operate at reduced capacity and will follow COVID-19 safety protocols outlined in Step 3 of B.C.’s restart plan, which goes into effect on Thursday.

Tickets can be purchased online starting Friday.

The PNE was cancelled last year due to pandemic restrictions.

In May, fair organizers said even a modified, lower-capacity in-person PNE Fair would not be possible in 2021. Later that month, they said they were “cautiously optimistic” about the prospect of a fair after B.C. health officials announced details of the province’s restart plan.
