Are you ready for winter? Like busy little elves, the team at the PNE has been working away to send you into winter with a bright holiday spirit. That’s why they’ve put together the PNE Winter Fair presented by BCAA.

Full of fun, magic, and festivity, this year’s PNE Winter Fair (2023) has more to offer than ever before. Here’s everything you won’t want to miss out on:

The PNE Holiday Express

All aboard! The PNE Holiday Express is pulling into the station and everyone is invited. This train will be carrying you on a festive journey through the PNE site, whether you’re 2 or 92. Ride as many times as you like and fill your hearts with the holiday spirit we’ve all been waiting for. This train is free with admission.

Discover Santa

Perfect for your little ones who want to meet Santa and love solving puzzles, this interactive journey takes you through a few different stations before you get to meet Santa himself. With the help of Santa’s elves, your kids will write a letter to Santa at the Post Office, leave a delicious reindeer treat in the barns for Santa’s reindeer to discover once they’re back from helping him deliver gifts, make a holiday ornament, and even take a spin at Toy Testing to make sure all the toys getting sent out work perfectly. This magical journey is one your children won’t soon forget.

WinterLights presented by BC Hydro

These light displays are just as cute as you remember! Grab a hot chocolate (or some cider or mulled wine) and wander through the gingerbread village, snap a photo at the kissing swans, and soak in all the magic you can. These light displays are the perfect place to make holiday memories and are included with admission. Since this event is outside, bring an umbrella if it’s raining.
