There’s lots of events around Vancouver in the summer, big and small. Playland and the PNE is one of the most popular ones and it combines an amusement park with a summer fair. It’s one of the bigger events with many people flocking to the fairgrounds to enjoy the many events and rides.
If you love amusements parks, you’ve got to check out Playland. It’s only open from May to September and has 18 different rides, including a few roller coasters. The most famous one is the Wooden Coaster, which was built in 1958! If you love the excitement of rides, why not check it out? Summer is the perfect time to visit, because you can also visit the Fair at the PNE!
The Fair is held at the end of August and beginning of September that includes concerts and different exhibitions. They have different little events all day to check out while you wander around. One of the cool things they have is a marketplace where you can buy all sorts of different goods including soaps, fashion items and cleaning supplies. In another building, they have a bunch of different farm animals on display, so if you’ve always wanted to see a cow or a goat up close, this is your chance! After that, you can go and check out the craft beer garden and the different performances! These things are only open during the Fair at the PNE, starting August 20th to September 5th.
You can buy tickets online, at London Drugs, or at the fair gates!
