This summer’s Fair at the PNE runs from Aug. 18 to Sept. 3.

New attractions this year include Knights of Valour, a medieval-style jousting show featuring horses at the Coliseum.

At the Rollerland building, an interactive POPnology exhibit will highlight technology used in movies, books, television and art, while an Action Sports World Tour thrills at the Coliseum with twice-daily shows.

Nightly, a new NOVA: The Emergence of Light show will be featured at the fair’s Festival Park, and a Lost World of Dragons attraction will fill the Garden Auditorium.

Also at Festival Park is ARCY LIVE!, a “live event mural” featuring the work of Ryan “ARCY” Christenson, known for his paint-splashed style of large-scale street art. “For each of the 15 days of The Fair, ARCY will be creating LIVE mural art celebrating iconic moments of the Pacific Coliseum’s history, as we celebrate its 50th anniversary,” according to a post on the fair’s website.
