British Columbia Northern Exhibition (BCNE), Prince George BC
The Superdogs will be at the BCNE all four days!
The BCNE is presented by the Prince George Agricultural and Historical Association.
Welcome to the 110th annual British Columbia Northern Exhibition!
Did you know that the BCNE is one of the longest running fall fairs around? Started in 1912, 3 years before the City of Prince George was incorporated, the first exhibition was held downtown and brought in about 200 people. They hoped that townspeople and farmers in the district would exhibit, compete and enjoy themselves, drawing the community together. The fair continued at various downtown locations until 1964, when an agreement was made between the City of Prince George and the Exhibition Association to manage the fair grounds from which they operate today.
As early as the 1930s, the Boys and Girls Club, now known as 4-H, participated in the fair, always emphasizing a strong agricultural background. This continues to this day! 4-H youth, leaders and their volunteers and families have been working all year long for the opportunity to showcase their achievements and host the annual 4-H Auction at the BCNE this summer. Potential buyers are encouraged to support local agriculture and these future farmers, growers and producers.
The oldest divisions and the cornerstones to any fair or exhibition are the Home Arts and Horticulture Divisions. Dozens of sections including baking, woodworking, spinning and weaving, quilting, cut flowers and baskets and hundreds of classes to enter are all featured in our annual Prize Book. We encourage folks to enter at least three classes and challenge three friends to do the same! Let’s fill Home Arts and Horticulture with a sea of ribbons.
