The CNE is back.
Running now until September 3, the Canadian National Exhibition is back with more diverse programming than ever before, along with new and exciting rides, attractions and mouthwatering food options, making it the ultimate summer date spot.
As 2018 celebrates the Canada-China Year of Tourism, the CNE will be home to one of the world’s largest indoor lantern festival featuring 17 illuminated large-scale art installations on display daily inside the Enercare Centre, as well as an outdoor TELUS Asian Market, transforming Princes’ Blvd. into a bustling and lively marketplace for artisanal crafts and authentic street foods over the last few days of the Ex.
Of course, old faves like the Aerial Acrobatics & Ice Skating Show and the CNE Bandshell will be returning. Headliners at the Bandshell include Blood, Sweat & Tears, Dennis DeYoung and the music of STYX, Nancy Wilson of Heart, as well as new music from The Trews, Bedouin Soundclash and Marianas Trench, to name a few.
And if you haven’t already had your fill of festival foods and outrageous concessions, this is your chance.
Whether its Chocolate Banana Steakclair from Philthy Philly’s, S’more Fried Chicken Sandwich by Heartbreak Chef, or The Golden Burger from Bacon Nation, the CNE grounds covers it all.
The annual CNE Food Truck Frenzy is also going down this year, wrapping up summer from August 24 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.
