“After carefully considering a new way forward in light of increasing vaccination rates and declining COVID-19 case counts, we are extremely pleased to welcome visitors to the 2021 PNE Fair,” says PNE President and CEO Shelley Frost.

“The PNE team have worked tirelessly to plan for a reduced capacity fair with a more limited scope that still delivers the fun that people have come to expect, and to that end we have been successful. This is good news not only for our staff, exhibitor and concessionaire partners, but also for the many young, first-time employees who rely on the PNE to pay for school or support their families. The PNE Fair has been a landmark cultural event for generations, and we are excited to share it with British Columbians once again.”

Revel District

The PNE Fair’s entertainment zone will have multiple bar locations and tasty barbecue food smoked over a traditional open charcoal pit by BBQ pit masters, there are many reasons not to miss out. Visitors can grab a delicious bite or beverage, stay late and party the night away with entertainment that never stops. With performances from long-time Fair favourite Nearly Neil to performances by the always popular Dr. Strangelove and March Hare to the R & B Allstars and Soulstream, the Revel District Stage has something for every music fan.

Catch some of Vancouver’s drag superstars at For The Love of Drag! Tuck Entertainment presents a menagerie of drag queens nightly on-stage serving outrageous looks and breathtaking performances to some of your favourite pop songs.
