Held annually since 1912 the BCNE is proudly presented by the Prince George Agricultural and Historical Association
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, “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. The 103rd BCNE has come and gone with blazing success. Please stay tuned for information regarding the 2016 British Columbia Northern Exhibition! Read more about the BCNE.
