For 111 years, agriculture has been the heart of the PNE Fair, and the goal has always remained the same – to showcase BC’s vibrant agriculture industry to our guests.
Every year, a farm within the city is created inside the historic livestock barns allowing our guests to experience an array of farm animals, interactive educational exhibits as well as access to connecting with authentic and informative agriculture producers from a range of agriculture sectors. Through partnerships with BC Dairy Association, BC Cattlemen’s Association, BC Egg Marketing Board, and BC Chicken Marketing Board as well as BuyBC, the exhibits at the Fair enable visitors access to experiences that can’t be found anywhere else in the city limits!
Daily: 11am-10pm, in the Livestock Barns

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.
The Marketplace has been a well-known PNE tradition for years.
This year visitors can browse and explore more than 50 exhibit booths in the historic Livestock Building. Featuring a variety of products, the Marketplace is bound to have unique finds for all our guests.
