Ask any PNE Manager what the reaction is when they tell people they work at the PNE and they will all say the same thing… “Is that a part time job?” Or “Well, what do you do the rest of the year?” For the last 15 days of the summer, we are all working day and night at the Fair at the PNE, but make no mistake, this is absolutely a full time job.
Did you realize that while you are touring the PNE Prize Home, we are already making plans for the next one? Or that while you lose your lunch on Atmosfear our Playland Team is working behind the scenes to get ready for Fright Nights?
While The Fair certainly is the best part of summer, the PNE is constantly in full swing all year round. Between planning the next big event up to a year out, maintaining the 114+ acres of public parks and gardens and managing our seven on-site buildings, we’re busy hosting a variety of concerts, sporting and community events, tradeshows and private parties. In March alone you can enjoy the following events:
LEARN TO FISH
ANNUAL MOTORCYCLE SWAP MEET
And in amongst all of this, we are also getting ready to launch another exciting season in Playland complete with new Bumper Cars and before you know it we will all be enjoying those exciting fifteen days of the Fair at the PNE (which we are already knee deep in planning for).
So to answer your question…yes this is a full-time job. And while we are chatting…no, although it is an important job, I am not the one who makes cotton candy!
