A celebration of the almighty mini donut! We can’t believe we don’t get to see you all at Playland right now so we’d like to bring one of our favourite food items to you this weekend.

A Taste of the PNE – Mini Donut Edition is the first in an anticipated series of events celebrating some of our Playland and Fair favourites. In partnership with other donut food trucks, this mini donut drive thru event offers the ability to drive up to each of the participating donut stands, grab a variety of donuts to go for a bundled price.

Vote for your favourite to help us crown the BC’s Best Mini Donut!

With each package purchased, you are supporting local, Canadian-owned businesses. Each standard pack contains six mini donuts from each of the following mini donut vendors: Tin Lizzy Donuts, Those Little Donuts, CinCity Donuts and the PNE Fundunkers.

If this just isn’t enough donuts for your crew, the family pack offers twice the donuts at each food truck, giving you a total of four dozen mini donuts!
