A Taste of the PNE: Drive-Thru Fair Experience

Carloads of Fun!

All tickets are SOLD OUT – thank you for your support!

This year’s PNE Fair Experience is more Expedition than Exhibition.

Gather your social circle for a fun drive through Hastings Park, experiencing your Fair favourites from the comfort of your vehicle – including the President’s Choice® SuperDogs™ Tail-Gate Party, farm animals like pigs, cows and goats, and a reverse parade where you’re IN THE SHOW.

Then stop for perogies, mini donuts, and other traditional treats!

It’s going to be a tail-wagging good time!

Location & Directions

The entrance to the PNE Drive-Thru Fair Experience is Gate 9 on Bridgeway Street on the east side of Hastings Park.

Bridgeway is accessible for car heading east on McGill Street (veer right before going onto Highway 1/ Ironworkers Memorial Bridge), or by taking exit #26 off Highway 1 (either direction). Vehicles on Hastings Street can also turn (north) as if going towards the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge, but should turn left onto Bridgeway Street for access to the site.

The most fun on four tires!


The President's Choice® SuperDogs™ Tail-Gate Party

Join The President’s Choice® SuperDogs™ for a Tail-Gate Party like no other as they run, jump and fly in this interactive, socially distanced spectacle! Three 10-minute shows every hour filled with fun and surprises!

Summer Celebration Reverse Parade

Feel the Rhythm of a Summer Celebration as you become part of the show.  Honk your horn, wave, and make some noise as you drive through a Reverse Parade route line with dancers, puppets, and blast of colour and fun.

Dino Drive

Stomp through time as you roar by your favourite larger-than-life dinosaurs, including a 50’ Brachiousauras, a Triceratops, and watch for the mighty T-Rex.
