British Columbia Northern Exhibition (BCNE)
The BCNE, formerly known as the Prince George Exhibition (PGX), is the longest running family fair in the north!
Three years before the City of Prince George was incorporated and the same year the Titanic sank, the first Prince George Exhibition was held! According to Ted Williams, one of Prince George's most notable local historians, in "See you at the Ex," by Lois Rush, "A few men met, had a few drinks, put their straw hats together and came up with the idea of a fall fair."
They hoped that townspeople and farmers in the district would exhibit, compete, enjoy themselves and draw the community together. Only in a handful of instances has the fair been cancelled; it has weathered the storm of world wars, times of hardship and prosperity, growth and development, growing pains and change.
Join us for everything from barrel racing to bull riding, ducks to lumberjacks, entertainment and competitions. Don't miss the largest fireworks show in northern BC, which will be a whole lot of fun for all ages and the entire family!
