Vancity supports the PNE’s journey toward year-round environmental sustainability

Vancity has been a proud partner of the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) for the past 11 years, and we’re thrilled to continue to support the PNE as they take their journey toward zero waste one step further—into year-round environmental sustainability.

In previous years, Vancity and the PNE have focused our efforts on reducing waste during the 15 days of The Fair at the PNE - and it’s been a great success. Thanks to the combined effort from the PNE, Vancity, and Vancity community partners like The Binners’ Project, The Fair was able to divert 64% of its waste from the landfill in 2017 —a full four percent more than its target for the year!

Building on that success, the PNE is launching a series of year-round initiatives to further reduce its environmental footprint, including programs around Green Buildings, Green Lifestyles and replacing all single-use disposables with 100% compostable serving ware.

Enjoy $10 off your entry every day of The Fair

In 2017, thousands of Vancity members enjoyed reduced ticket prices every day of The Fair as part of our partnership with the PNE. And great news—it’s back!

To claim your discounted $8 entry* (a $10 discount) to The Fair at the PNE, simply present your Vancity MEMBER CARD® debit card or enviro™ Visa card at the PNE gate between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. every day of The Fair. (Please note, discounted admission will be limited to that arrival time, and Vancity members arriving later will be charged the regular fare.)

While you enjoy your favourite Fair food, games and rides, be sure to keep an eye out for our roaming Vancity Zero Waste Ambassadors bearing games and prizes! The 2018 Fair takes place from August 18 to September 3 (closed August 20 & 27), and gates open at 11 a.m.
