The Guide to PNE Discounts and Freebies

Swinging in the Air - PNE N3165e

It’s almost that time of year.  The PNE, Vancouver’s annual summer fair, opens on Aug. 20 for 17 days of carnival rides, concerts, deep-fried Oreos, barnyard exhibits and fireworks.

For many Vancouverites, it’s a celebrated summer rite of passage, bringing back fond childhood memories.   But one thing that has changed since those good-old-days is the price.  Adult admission to the PNE is $20 this year.  A ride pass will set you back another $42.75.  As amusement parks go, these prices are actually rather reasonable.  But for a family, the expenses can add up fast.

Gourmet Lunch at Bargain Price: $29 Special at Market

For many foodies, the highlight of the culinary year is Dine Out Vancouver, when the city’s top restaurants offer discount tasting menus.  The only problem: Dine Out lasts but two short weeks (2010’s event ran from April 26-May 6).

Which is why the ongoing lunch special at Market restaurant in the downtown’s Shangri-La hotel is so exceptional.  $29 buys you a three-course lunch, Monday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  It’s like a Dine Out promotion that never ends.
