The Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) is Canada’s largest community event and one of the top 5 agricultural fairs in North America.
Founded in 1879 as the Toronto Industrial Exhibition, the CNE has enjoyed a distinguished history as a showcase of the nation. People came to experience the latest innovations in technology and commercial products, to enjoy the popular entertainers of the time, and to engage in a collective community celebration.
Although the CNE has changed significantly over the years, it continues to be one of Ontario’s great annual traditions and an event that offers substantial entertainment value for money.
Taking place over the 18 days leading up to and including Labour Day, it is affectionately embraced as an end-of-summer ritual by more than 1.5 million visitors annually, visitors who reflect the rich diversity of Toronto and the region.
Highlights of the annual CNE include:
* Celebrity Chef Demonstrations
* The Farm
* Kids’ World (a green space featuring attractions designed for children 10 & under)
* Park Entertainers & interactive experiences
* Daily Mardi Gras Parade
* A three-day Air Show (on Labour Day Weekend)
* & much more!
All attractions & shows are FREE with admission to the CNE!
