Discover Metro Vancouver at the PNE

Discover Metro Vancouver at the PNE

Metro Vancouver returns to the Pacific Nation Exhibition from August 20 to September 5!

Swing by Metro Vancouver’s exhibition at the PNE this summer to get hands on with the services and solutions that are making this region one of the most livable in the world. Be wowed by pieces of our gigantic infrastructure, take a peek at a real dive suit used to maintain the sewer mains underneath the Burrard Inlet and Fraser River, see technology that helps monitor the region’s air quality, and enjoy a family-friendly show on the Metro Vancouver stage, featuring entertainers and performers throughout each day as well as an Indigenous Performers Spotlight.

The moments you share with your friends and family at the Metro Vancouver exhibit will help you feel closer to our beautiful region, and leave you with fun facts on how Metro Vancouver’s vast infrastructure, regional parks, and other initiatives help make our region one of the most livable in the world.
