Partying on Ice

Did you know that when you come to the Pacific Coliseum for an EDM event or a concert that you’re actually standing on a sub-floor that is place on top of ice? That ice is what the Vancouver Giants play on during hockey season. Most people think that the ice is removed and put back in between events, but that would actually take a lot more work!

Check out this cool time lapse to see how the job’s done.

Food Containers

At the PNE we have a dedicated Food and Beverage team that not only manage year-round banquets and private events, the copious concession stands throughout the Pacific Coliseum, PNE Forum and Playland and deliver on the famous artist riders for all of our on-site concerts, but they also dream up new PNE managed, designed and produced food trucks, or technically food containers, as ours are made out of recycled shipping containers. Most of our food ‘containers’ are brought out for you to enjoy during The Fair, and get stored during the winter, being seen at the occasional Vancouver Giants‘ game, at Playland (opening May 16) and Fright Nights.

Our current creations include FunDunkers Mini Donuts, Shrimp Boat, Crazy Dogs,Colossal Cones, Yumza Pizzeria, Cheese Please, Fresh Cut Fries and Unroutine Poutine. This year we’re looking to add to the mix and we have a few trending food craves in mind.  So lucky us, we’ll be spending our winter performing some mouth watering ‘market research’ to help us create delicious and unique offerings for all of you enjoy at The Fair this August! Any requests?!?
