 Canadian National Exhibition (CNE)

Toronto's largest annual fair, and always a great concert lineup of big ticket bands and performers.
With a huge midway to get lost in, tons of amusement rides, ferris wheels, roller coasters and all the candy cotton you can shake a stick at, the CNE (known simply as the 'Ex" to Torontonians) is an annual tradition for locals and tourists alike.

Combine your trip to the CNE fair with a visit to Ontario Place, which is located directly beside the CNE fairgrounds. Ontario Place is open all summer and has indoor and outdoor activities geared towards kids. Get wet with a wild water coaster, bumberboats, or stay dry and check out indoor exhibitions and events. Also, keep an eye to the sky for the Canadian International Air Show on Sept 3 - Sept 5, 2016

The 62nd annual Canadian International Air Show (CIAS) takes over the CNE skies Labour Day Weekend for another awe-inspiring show.

The Canadian National Exhibition is located near the heart of downtown Toronto on the shore of Lake Ontario.
