PNE Fair: Win your way in to the PNE Fair!

Since 1910, millions of guests have enjoyed shows, exhibits, sporting events, amusement rides, concerts, cultural activities and, of course, the annual summer Fair at the PNE.

Today, the PNE is the longest running and best attended annual ticketed event in BC and the site of hundreds of famous events – from a live performance from The Beatles to the historic Miracle Mile.

For the past ten decades the Pacific National Exhibition has showcased the best of Vancouver to the rest of Canada and the world, and this year is no different.

We’re excited to showcase Transport 2050 at this year’s PNE Fair with an amazing expo on the fair grounds including some innovative travel options, a look at our transit past and future through 3D and VR, a sneak-peek at our new Double-decker bus, a tour of the all new RapidBus, added service to get you there, and of course – a GIVEAWAY!

That’s right, we’re giving away FOUR family packs that includes a transit-themed water bottle from the TransLink Store, four admission passes and four ride passes to the PNE Fair!
