AutismBC Goes to the PNE Barns
August 25, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Join AutismBC and the PNE for a sensory friendly morning at the Fair! From 9:00 am – 10:30 am on August 25, the livestock barns will be opened exclusively for people with sensory sensitivities and their families. This is an opportunity to explore the barns with smaller crowds, reduced noise, and less activity on-site and in the surrounding neighbourhood. Families attending the event are welcome to stay after the barns open to the general public at 11:00 am.
Registration for the event includes access to the animals, the Discovery Farm, and other exhibits in the barns. If you’d like to stay and attend the Fair when it opens at 11:00 am, you’ll be able to purchase full Fair tickets at a special rate with a discount code that will be provided to all registered attendees.
Thank you to the PNE for their generous support in gifting us over 400 spaces for people on the autism spectrum to enjoy a sensory friendly experience this summer. We want to give a huge shout out to their incredible team, who continually strive to ensure their programs and facilities create an inclusive experience for all visitors.

Please note that we are hosting two of these events, one on August 25 and one on Sept 1. We ask that you only register for one of the days, to ensure that as many families as possible are able to attend.
