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.
