It’s Father’s Day this Sunday and if you have a meat-lover in the family or are just looking for something different to do, why not plan a special outing to the Pacific National Exhibition’s second concessionaire support series. This time the Pacific National Exhibition is upping its game with a salute to dad at the Father’s Day Weekend Car-B-Q event, June 18-21 at Hastings Park.
The event features the two Canadian concessionaires from the annual Fair Ribfest area, Smith family of Ontario with Gator’s Barbeque and Reinhardt family of Saskatchewan with Prairie Smoke. Attendees will also be able to support local family concessionaires Pary and Suzanne Poudier of Reel Mac and Cheese with a choice of two of their most popular PNE Fair mac and cheese favourites as well as Carlie and Scott Dennis of The Fry Guys with an iconic Canadian side, poutine!
The PNE wanted to add a special programming element that will be sure to get dad’s engine running – the first-ever indoor drive-through car show, presented by Canada’s largest hot rod shop, 360 Fabrication of Abbotsford. Attendees will drive across the Pacific Coliseum floor where they will see dozens of amazing classic, vintage, muscle, and hot rods from across the region on display.
The event will be staged in flights, with ticket purchasers picking their day, flight time, and favourite rib concessionaire and sides in advance through TicketLeader.ca. Full social distancing protocols developed in consultation with Vancouver Coastal Health will be adhered to throughout the fun weekend event!
Attendees must pre-purchase an online ticket at: www.ticketleader.ca. Ticket purchases include two tickets to the opening day of the 2021 PNE Fair. Prices are: $29 for one rack of ribs (plus two tickets to the 2021 Fair) and sides of mac and cheese or poutine can be purchased for $12 each. Entrance to the drive-through car show is free with your food purchase.
The Car-B-Q is the second in an anticipated series of events celebrating some of our Playland and Fair favourites and supporting PNE concessionaire families during this difficult time.
