BCNE offers snack-size version this year

BCNE is offering a smaller version of the fair this year from August 19 to 22 at the Exhibition grounds.

BCNE is offering a smaller version of the fair this year from August 19 to 22 at the Exhibition grounds. There was no exhibition at all last year because of the pandemic.

4H will be the most prominent feature showcased in the barns at the fair grounds this year while West Coast Amusements will bring in 12 to 15 rides for the summer thrill factor. There are also going to be food vendors so people can enjoy traditional fair fare.

“It’s going to be really simple this year - we’re not advertising it as the BCNE because it is not a BCNE fair,” Sylvia Layzell, general manager of the Prince George Agricultural and Historical Association, said. “We don’t have our entertainment, we don’t have our vendors and we don’t have our exhibits. It is simply 4H Achievement Days and food court and West Coast Amusements. It won’t be a full size midway like we normally have in August. It will be a smaller footprint, more like what shows up in May. It will be a smaller footprint all together but it’s something we wanted to give to the community.”

Gate admission is free so people can buy their ride tickets at the fair - no advance armband sales this year - and food and look at all the animals the 4H youth have cared for all year long.
