Exhibits & Attractions

Challenger Map

The Challenger Map, also known as the BC Relief Map, was a beloved PNE attraction for decades, enjoyed by millions of visitors from 1954 until 1997. The map was retired when the BC Pavilion building was deconstructed in the late 90s. Handcrafted with love by forestry mogul George Challenger and his family in the basement of their home, it was a gift to all British Columbians. Though it hasn’t been at the PNE for almost 25 years it is still one of the attractions that the PNE team gets asked about most often. We’re excited to have a section of it back on display at this year’s PNE Fair, while we work towards restoring the entire map for a future exhibit.

11am – 11pm in the PNE Forum
