All-Day Entertainment at the PNE Fair

Enjoy the numerous shows that happen at the PNE Fair daily! Here are some of the highlights at three of the stages this year!

BCAA ToonCity

If you’re happy and you know it, join Blue the Bear and his dancing squad at BCAA ToonCity! Throughout the day, Blue invites V.I.L.Ps (Very Important Little People) to come sing and dance with him and his friends in this interactive multimedia dance party!

Kid’s are invited to wear their favourite superhero costume to the Fair and report for duty at Super Action Academy! Once evening rolls around, you can unwind from your long day at the Fair by taking a seat on the hill and enjoying a Family Flick! See the full list of movies playing this year here.


Coca-Cola Stage at Festival Park 

Every year, the PNE Fair invites local performers and party bands to showcase their talents on stage. From a cultural mosaic of dynamic performers to the new nightly finale of fire with pyro, this stage is never short of entertainment. So go grab a snack, sit back and enjoy the shows!

Be sure to stop by the glass blowing demonstration tent to learn about this intricate art and all the hardwork that goes behind creating vases, drinking glasses and more! Learn more here, or download the PNE Fair App for full schedule details.


Tim Hortons Stage at Revel District

End your night at the Revel District with incredible carnival and Fair vibes. On the Tim Hortons Stage, Mama Lou’s feel good message will leave you feeling invincible. With a dry but affable, wry but off-beat sense of comedy, witness Mike Wood’s slick, interactive stunt comedy show that has taken him all over the world. And for those who have never been to a drag show before, “For the Love of Drag” is the perfect chance to see what you’ve been missing. Here’s a sneak peek of the show:

End your Night at the PNE Fair with…

…the Nightly Pyro Musical Finale!

Join us at Festival Park nightly at 10:15pm for the ultimate grand finale. Watch as the skies erupt with flying rockets, exploding fire, live performers and high-voltage intensity. Come feel the heat at Electric Fire and see for yourself.

Here are some of the best shots and what some Fair-goers had to say about the show:

“I definitely felt the heat!”
“What a way to end the night…”
“This ended my PNE Fair 2019 experience with a *bang*”
“What a show!!!”

Everything You Need to Know About the PNE Fair

If there is one family, must-see, flagship, food-filled, end-of-summer event that you just shouldn’t miss… it’s the PNE Fair!

Here’s your go-to guide on everything Fair so the only thing you have to stress about when you visit is which food truck to try.


Which pass do I need?

  • Fair Gate pass: This gets you into the PNE Fair! This includes access to the marketplace, the exhibitions, agriculture barns, lots of entertainment and stage shows including Reveen, pig races, and of course… the SuperDogs.
  • Fair Ride pass: This lets you ride on all the roller coasters and rides in Playland PLUS 12 more rides brought in for the Fair. You must have the Fair Gate pass in order to use this pass. Playland season passes are not valid during the PNE Fair.

Psst. If you know you want to access the amusement park and ride all the roller coasters, get the Fair Gate and Fair Ride Combo Pass in advance to save some money! Also don’t miss out on some of the promo days we have this year. Find out more on the ways to save here.


Where can I park my car? My bike?

Parking your vehicle is convenient as can be! Lots are located off Renfrew Street and Bridgeway Street. Additional parking is also available at Hastings and Windermere Street. During the PNE Fair, bike valet service is available on site to provide free and secure bike parking. You can find them inside the Red Gate on the corner of Hastings and Renfrew Street. There are also bike racks (without valet service) outside the Red and Purple Gates!

For those who have never been to the PNE Fair, welcome! Just so you know, the main gate entrance is on the corner of Hastings and Renfrew Street.


So are Summer Night Concerts free or… do I have to pay?

Every year, we give fans the option to purchase tickets for reserved seating and private suites in advance. Reserved seating tickets start at $25. However, we also have 2000 to 4000 free tickets available per show for general admission. These free tickets will be released at 11:00am during the day of the show, and can be obtained online (with a $3 service fee) or in-person at the PNE Amphitheatre box office. There’s an option for everybody!


There’s so much to do at the Fair and I don’t want to miss anything… where are the washrooms? Where is everything?!

We hear you and we got you covered! This year, we introduced an exclusive PNE Fair app that can be downloaded onto your mobile device through Google Play Store and the App Store for free. From maps to show lists and food options, this app gives you all the information you need to safely navigate through the Fair… and not have FOMO.

And if apps aren’t your thing, pick up a Fair brochure and show guide on your way in! These give you all your information you need to make your way around the area with confidence and snatch the best deals too!


 

Whether it’s your first time at the PNE Fair, or it’s an annual tradition, we want you have a stress-free experience.  If you ever have any questions or need any assistance, find our team at the Guest Services counters or message us on our social media channels. Happy Fair!
