That’s right, BC’s largest ticketed event is back & better than ever. The PNE Fair just released its lineup for summer 2022 – and they’re bringing back all of your fave performances, fair eats, and more.

What’s returning?

From SuperDogs to drag shows, to those delicious mini doughnuts – they’re pulling out all the stops for the Fair’s 111th annual celebration.

In addition to live performances on the Coca-Cola Stage, there will be a variety of BCAA ToonCity shows, agriculture displays, Prize Home displays, and exciting games & rides at Playland. Plus, all the fair fare you can eat.

Back by popular demand are For the Love of Drag, the PNE Pep Band, and the nightly pyro-musical show, Electric Fire. Yup, they’ve got fireworks this year!

Also returning this year is their Summer Night Concert Series on the GMC Stage, which boasts a pretty incredible lineup itself.
