Vancouver Events: New Winter Fair at PNE
Vancouver’s Pacific National Exposition will host an all-new winter fair in December, the organization announced Tuesday.
The 10-day, evening-only fair will begin Dec. 14 and feature a variety of holiday events, including concerts, a market, carolers and a nighttime tree-lighting ceremony.
“We are very pleased to announce the first PNE Winter Fair, building on the 112 year tradition of summer fairs, we believe our new winter event will be a place for British Columbians to build memories as we celebrate the holiday season,” said Shelley Frost, PNE. President and CEO, in a press release.
Tickets for the fair, which will run from 4:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. for the 10 days, will go on sale this Thursday. Each $15 ticket includes most entertainment except evening concerts. Tickets for these range from $39 to $69 and feature artists like Tom Cohrane, Jann Arden and The Tenors.
“After two years of driving COVID winter events, it was important for us to define our permanent place in the holiday event landscape,” Frost said.
“This event will be an important annual addition to the annual PNE programming and will mean that hundreds of new jobs will be created and millions of dollars in economic benefits will be generated in the regional economy.”
