2013 Fair at the PNE Opens This Saturday (Free Ticket Giveaway!)


The Pacific National Exhibition kicks off the 103rd annual Fair at the PNE this Saturday, August 17. Running until Monday, September 2 (closed Mondays August 19 and 26) this beloved annual tradition celebrates the best entertainment of the summer.

New to this year’s Fair at the PNE is Genghis Khan: The Exhibition, honouring the world’s greatest conqueror and leader who was responsible for bringing us passports, paper money and the pony express. Also be sure to check out Dueling Pianos in the Plaza Beer Garden, the totally tubular 80s Forever party and the gravity-defying Sportacular show.

This year’s Summer Night Concerts lineup has something for everyone, featuring legendary classics, electronic pop, country, rock and indie-folk music. The Beach Boys, The Jacksons, Sam Roberts Band, Melissa Etheridge, Lights, Dean Brody, Great Big Sea and Colin James and others will all be hitting the WestJet Concert Stage. Concerts will run every evening at 8:30pm over the 15 days of the Fair.

A popular act and huge crowd pleaser, the Superdogs, will be back for 2013. Also returning is the action packed Family Feud Live! and the gravity-defying performance by the Peking Acrobats. Don’t forget to check out the 4-H Festival or visit the Kidz Discovery Farm. Also, take a tour of the 3,000 square foot PNE Prize Home, designed by former Bachelorette and HGTV host of Love It or List It Vancouver, Jillian Harris.

The Fair at the PNE will be closed the first two Mondays, August 19 and August 26, allowing for the savings associated with the reduction of costs over The Fair’s two traditionally slowest days to be passed on to guests. Fairgoers of this year’s Fair will see a 20% reduction in pricing of general admission and parking.

Along with reduced Gate Pass and parking prices, a brand new initiative for the 2013 Fair is The Fair Coupon Book. Making the best part of summer even more affordable for all families, the Coupon Book contains discounts from over 50 vendors and exhibitors, offering guests even more ways to save. The Coupon Book is free with the purchase of Fair tickets online at pne.ca between June 11 and July 31, 2013. Alternatively, it is available to guests for $2 onsite and contains over $500 in savings for Fair guests to enjoy throughout the entire Fair.

    Always had fond memories as a child as the whole family packed up and headed to the PNE. It was our reward for getting good grades in school as a child! Back then the PNE used to put a children’s pass in each elementary school report card. It sure helped my father to be able to take 4 kids, knowing he still had food and rides to pay for.

    The PNE….the sights, the lights, the sounds and the smells… ahh… yes, the smells!

  335. Raili

    The PNE is one of my fav things about the summer – I go every year and love every minute of it!!!!

  336. Since our arrival Vancouver in 1991, my family and I have never been missing a single summer fun time at the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE). As this is the only major fun-filled summer event that our most livable city in the world has, it is but very important to spend the end of our summer each year by enjoying and having fun at our ONE and ONLY PNE. For me, everything that PNE offers every year is never a dull moment!

    Kudos to all PNE staffers for a job well done!

  355. Cherree

    I remember going to the PNE every year when I was a child up into my 30’s. I would love to take my 6 year old but money is tight and we can’t afford to go. even with the reduced rates (which are great by the way). If I won the tickets I would get to see the excitement on my little guys face while he explores for the first time the best place to be during the summer in Vancouver.
