That means two Canadian concession stands from the Fair Ribfest will be there, along with the Reel Mac and Cheese stand and The Fry Guys, who serve up poutine.


There will also be an indoor drive-through car show, where attendees can drive across the Pacific Coliseum floor. There, visitors will see dozens of classic, vintage, muscle and hot rods on display.

Visitors must buy their tickets ahead of time to pick their day and time. Pricing is as follows:

  • $29 for one rack of ribs (plus two tickets to the 2021 Fair)
  • Sides of mac and cheese or poutine can be purchased for $12 each (in addition to the $29)
  • Entrance to the drive-through car show is free with your food purchase
