Let’s Go To The Ex Toronto!

Come on T.O. Let’s Go To The Ex!

One of the most celebrated end-of-summer family rituals is taking place right now at Exhibition Place. Torontonians look forward to the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE), also known as the Ex, all summer long and as usual it is here for only 18 days leading up to and including Labour Day.  With over a million visitors each year, the CNE is one of Canada’s largest annual community fairs and one of the top 10 agricultural fairs in North America.  The CNE is filled with a wide variety of entertaining colorful experiences for almost everyone to enjoy.  From concerts, classic food fairs, celebrity chef demonstrations, farm animals, shopping, to wacky games and thrill seeking rides, the Ex is the place to go to make sure you’ve ended your summer in the most perfect way.


For those that wish to seek out some thrills and chills, the CNE offers its classic midway rides showcasing the Twister, Zipper, Mega Drop, Sky Ride (highly recommend!) and much more.  If you’re attending with kiddies, be sure to attend the family-friendly Kiddie Midway featuring 30 playful fun rides and a selection of age-appropriate games.  Be sure to try your luck at the old-fashioned vintage CNE games and casinos, and take a stroll through the Pavilions and shop till you drop!  You cannot and will not forgive yourself if you don’t indulge in one or two…or more of the delicious mouth-watering unique foods introduced at the Ex.  Visit the Food Building filled with tempting and tasty treats for everyone from fried chicken to waffles on a stick, deep-fried cheesecake, poutine balls, to food trucks and craft beer!  From celebrity chefs, rib fests, international performers, acrobatic & ice skating shows to concerts and parades the CNE is the place where memories are made with your loved ones.  The excitement comes to a close on Labour Day weekend in a three-day air show, which you do not want to miss!

Three words best describe The Canadian National Exhibition, EXcellent, EXtreme, EXcitement…only at the EX!
