PNE amphitheatre breaks ground in Vancouver

Jun 3, 2024 | Public | 0 comments

The new PNE amphitheatre in Vancouver has broken ground. Designed by renowned Vancouver-based architecture company Revery Architecture, construction on the amphitheatre is anticipated to be complete in summer 2026.

The amphitheatre project, which has been in the planning stages for several years, is
anticipated to be one of the most spectacular venues of its kind on the West Coast of North America.

The project will be designed to showcase British Columbian and Canadian building products and engineering while adhering to the highest standards of environmental sustainability.

One of the most spectacular elements of the design is the roof structure, which will be longer than the roof of the Richmond Oval and one of the longest clear-span roofs in the world.

“We can’t wait for the new state-of-the-art amphitheatre to entertain hundreds of thousands of people each year, ensuring the PNE continues to be a premier destination for live entertainment that brings visitors back, again and again,” said B.C. Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture and Sport Lana Popham.

The venue’s new naming rights partner was announced by PNE president and CEO Shelley Frost.

“Following an extensive nationwide call for proposals, we welcome Freedom Mobile as the naming rights partner for our spectacular new outdoor covered music venue,” said Frost. “This partnership brings together two organizations who are both clearly committed to being the home of incredible experiences for Vancouverites, British Columbians and guests from around the world.”

The 12-year agreement includes a number of additional elements with support not only for the amphitheatre, which is anticipated to open in 2026, but beginning in 2024 a partnership on some of the PNE’s most beloved properties including the annual summer Fair and the PNE’s extremely popular Halloween event, Fright Nights.
