Pacific National Exhibition
The Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) is Vancouver's largest event destination. No single location in Vancouver captures the spirit and history of this city, its people and its many achievements as the PNE.
The PNE fairgrounds was established in 1910 to showcase British Columbia. The PNE operates on a 114-acre site at the City of Vancouver-owned Hastings Park and consists of Playland, the annual 15-day Fair at the PNE and Fright Nights at Playland.
