What’s new at the PNE for 2018

Summer wouldn’t be summer without the PNE, and this year’s line up is sure to delight fans young and old:

This year’s Fair will feature some exciting NEW shows and entertainment including:

 Knights of Valour

Prepare yourself for entertainment worthy of a King and Queen. With full contact, un-choreographed, real live jousting, this is a thrilling show of horsemanship, bravery and chivalry like you’ve never seen before. Come and see your knights in shining armour as they ride into battle – it’s positively medieval!


This interactive, engaging exhibit makes the connection: how technology has been influenced by movies, books, television, art, and futurists. Check out the DeLorean (from Back to the Future), Hal 9000, a 3D printed car, robot displays featuring Baxter, and more.

 Street of Dreams

There is something nostalgic about classic cars, custom hot rods, trucks, and bikes.

Walk the Street of Dreams – a classic and custom car show is unlike anything else you experienced. This invitational exhibit is not your Sunday cruise.

 Action Sports World Tour

Come cheer on the world’s best professional skateboarders and BMX riders as they perform mind-boggling aerial stunts on a state-of-the-art half-pipe. You’ll have to see with your own eyes what these amazing X Games veterans are capable of.
