A Taste of the PNE: Drive-Thru Fair Experience

The PNE Fair drive-thru
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Around this time of year, we would begin planning our annual visit to The PNE Fair. Unfortunately, this year is not like other year’s and a lot of things have changed due to precautions to keep our friends, families, and communities safe from COVID-19.

Luckily, the PNE has a very creative team and they have found a way to allow us to still enjoy The Fair this year. After 110 years, British Columbians have loved their end-of-summer tradition filled with the smell of frying onions, the screams from the iconic Wooden Coaster, a nighttime show under a Vancouver summer sky, mini donuts and, of course, SuperDogs! 

From August 22-30 (closed Monday, August 24) 11 am-7 pm, you can visit The Fair from the safety of your car. As part of The Taste of the PNE series, the Drive-Thru Fair has all of your favourite features. 

Guests attending the 2020 PNE Fair drive-thru event will see a number of Fair favourites including: 

  • The President’s Choice® SuperDogs™ Tail-Gate Party! – The Superdogs will be running, jumping, and flying in this interactive, socially distanced spectacle! 
  • Drive thru-agriculture displays including all your favourite barnyard animals
  • A Summer Celebration PNE Reverse Parade – join in the fun and honk your horn as you pass the talented dancers, puppets, and entertainment!
  • Win A House, Win a Car! PNE Prize Home drive-thru ticket sales
  • Larger than life dinosaurs including a 50’ Brachiosaurus, a Triceratops, and watch for the mighty T-Rex!
  • Iconic Fair food including Hunky Bills, mini donuts, corn dogs, and poutine!
