Fair Setup is in Full Swing!

Our crew has been hard at work getting the Fair set up for opening weekend! Hats off to our entire team, and extended team, who have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to create a fresh new Fair at the PNE.

From handling precious cargo straight from the set of Game of Thrones®, setting up the Chevrolet Performance stage for the Mosaic Music Series, rounding up our delicious food vendors, to putting together our brand new Get Animated Exhibit! They really do it all.

Ever wonder how the PNE grounds look just days before The Fair opens? The site transforms within the span of two weeks, so what you see here will be nothing like what you’ll see in person starting this Saturday!

Check out a few behind the scenes set-up photos below!

PNE Prize Home Galore!

We had such an exciting day at the PNE Prize Home this morning! Media from across the Lower Mainland toured the Grand Prize house getting a sneak peak at what went into this year’s gorgeous layout and design! Jillian Harris from LOVE IT or LIST IT VANCOUVER was on site to answer all questions and talk more about her design inspiration. Jillian has outdone herself this time around, and created a space that is both fun and fresh, but also rustic and welcoming!

Appearing this morning on QMFM, Jillian talked about how this year’s Prize Home is her favourite to date- and ours too! You can listen to her full interview here! Here’s a little snippet from her interview with Nat and Drew:

“This is my favourite house so far. You can always judge how good the PNE Prize Home is by the reaction of the PNE staff themselves who see it for the first time, and say “this is my favourite!” As a designer, when everybody is on the same page and everyone says it’s their favourite, that’s when you know!”

This year’s Prize House breathes such a fresh and airy style, while still having an eclectic touch: one of the many reasons this home on Kelowna’s beautiful Kirschner Mountain is ideal for any lifestyle. Have you checked out her design for the PNE Prize Home? If you haven’t already, you have to see what she put together this year!
