Top Pick

The PNE is located in Vancouver on Hastings street just before Boundary Rd which marks the beginning of Burnaby.

- the PNE is open most of the year for concerts and sports events in any one of the arenas.

- the Pacific National Exhibition is one of several Exhibitions that open up in Canadian cities during the summer.

- Playland is open during the summer and boasts many different rides

- the Fair has a variety of exhibits, international foods and parks. This area is mostly for the entertainment of families. The Fair includes horse and car races and is open for 17 days at the end of August.

However, in the summer Playland opens up and that's when it really gets fun. It usually opens up in late April and closes at the beginning of September. Booths set up where you can play any number of games, from fishing to darts to you name it, for a small fee. There is of course the promise of some prize, usually a stuffed animal.

There are also a variety of roller-coasters and other rides. The rides are for most ages, there is a kids section and while other rides are strictly for adults, such as the Hellevator. There is also the requisite Ferris wheel, a glass house, merry-go-round, bumper cars, and a climbing wall.

One of the best features of the PNE is the fact that every October they turn it into an adult Halloween exhibit. A variety of genuinely fun and frightening haunted houses go up, and many of the best rides are still open. However, the PNE is only open during the weekends during October.
