The PNE's brand new 10-day Winter Fair with nightly concerts begins in a week

If you are a fan of the PNE’s annual late-summer festivities, there’s a new fair coming that will surely have you excited.

The first-ever PNE Winter Fair, a 10-day event that the PNE is calling “a unique winter holiday experience,” kicks off next Wednesday.

It will feature some favourites from the PNE Summer Fair, holiday-themed food and beverages, an outdoor Holiday Marketplace, a walk-through light display, skating and plenty more.

There will also be nightly indoor concerts and this year’s lineup includes Tom Cochrane, Jann Arden, Dallas Smith, Johnny Reid and other notable names.

“We are very excited to announce the inaugural PNE Winter Fair, building on the 112-year Summer Fair tradition we believe that our new winter event will be a place where British Columbians will build memories celebrating the holiday season,” said PNE President and CEO Shelley Frost.

“After two years of COVID drive through winter events, it was important for us to define our permanent place in the holiday event landscape.”

Frost added that the event will create hundreds of new jobs and millions of dollars in positive economic impact to the region.

This year’s PNE Winter Fair will run from Dec. 14-23, 4:30-10:30 pm each night, and tickets will set you back $15.
