The Pacific National Exhibition has unveiled a star-studded lineup of concerts and shows for its 100th annual Fair at the PNE this summer, including Boyz II Men, The Beach Boys and Peter Pan.

"The Fair at the PNE is a beloved annual tradition for families across British Columbia," said PNE President and CEO Mike McDaniel in a press release.

"We are confident that the 2015 Fair at the PNE delivers world class family entertainment for the best ticket value in the country."

Organizers say this year's summer concert series will feature an array of artists to suit everyone's tastes — Christina Perri and Colbie Caillat for pop fans, Lee Brice for country music lovers, Boyz II Men for those who prefer a little R&B, and The Beach Boys and Hall & Oates for rock 'n' rollers, among others.

For the first time, fairgoers will also be able to take in a Broadway production of "Peter Pan" starring Tony Award nominee Cathy Rigby.

Other attractions include a Beatles memorabilia exhibition, a craft beer festival, and the annual PNE Prize Home lottery.

The concerts and the musical are free with fair admission ($16 for people ages 14 to 64). The fair runs most days from August 22 to September 7 starting at 11 a.m. PT.
