Win the ultimate CNE date night and $50 in food vouchers (CONTEST)

Aug 16 2019, 4:52 pm

The CNE is finally here.

From August 16 to September 2 (Labour Day Monday), the annual jamboree will transform 192 acres of Toronto’s Exhibition Place into a colourful midway, complete with pavilions, rides and games, live entertainment, and plenty of outrageous eats.

The CNE Food Truck Frenzy is also going down this year, wrapping up summer from August 22 to August 26 by bringing together nearly two dozen food trucks. Conveniently, this food fest takes place at the same time as the CNE Craft Beer Fest so you can wash down your fave curbside eats with a cold one.
