All of these nightly concerts are entirely FREE with your fair admission. View a full schedule here.

There will be the “100 Years of Fun Parade” once daily including a cast of 50 performers and 12 giant balloons (think Macy’s Thanksgiving Day paradae). There’s also the Kaboom! fireworks show nightly, and performances from the Metro Vancouver Naval 2010 Centennial Tattoo, the U.S. Marine Corps Band, the Seaforth Highlanders and the Vancouver Police Pipe Band.

Everyone’s favourites will also be back again this year as well — the Superdogs, Logger Sports, and the legendary Dal Richards with his orchestra.

    Whoa that artist lineup is amazeballs. Can’t wait, the PNE always brings back memories of gorging myself with junk food.

    I had no idea Kevin Costner was in a band!

    I agree with the above – Kevin Costner was shocking. Think seeing Joan Jett and Trooper would be fun

    Wow, another merry bunch of 80’s bands! Cyndi Lauper! Joan Jett! Hate to admit it, but I did see Huey Lewis and the News back in their heyday.

    Thanks for posting. This will remind me to GO!

    Does anyone know what the schedule for these concerts looks like?

    Been a fan of Joan Jett’s since her and I were both
    15. The last time I saw her was when
    she played the commodore with The Blackhearts
    back in the 80’s so I’m looking
    forward to the PNE show, what
    can I say, “I Love Rock n Roll”

    Michael Bolton attracted some interesting fans last night. Surprised to see some younger folks in the audience who were totally into it.
