It’s a little bittersweet, but it’s the last month of summer! Here to take the sting away from the end is the CNE rolling into town. This annual exhibition is a tradition that I never miss! The CNE runs from August 18th to September 4th this year.
This summer on the bandstand visitors can catch live performances from Kiefer Sutherland, Sam Roberts Band, A Tribe Called Red and Dear Rouge.
Food lovers, don’t fret. There’s always something new and delicious to try at the CNE. This year the CNE will be hosting a East Coast VIP Lobster Dinner. VIP Patrons will be seated in an exclusive area on Princes’ Blvd. illuminated by overhead Edison lights with a live soundtrack provided by the Celtic Rock Warrior Band, the Mudmen. Dinner will include a luscious Lobster with traditional sides of potato salad, (and) corn on the cobb all catered by Picton’s The Sand and Pearl. Tickets are $141 per person.
This year, the CNE will be unveiling a sign much like the icon TORONTO sign at City Hall. The 8 foot tall sign will spell CNE and include a maple leag. It’s sure to be popular with Instagrammers! At night, visitors can catch a new show, MZ Laser. The show features a “human lazer” which sounds intriguing!
Of course, my favouite part of the CNE is the food trucks and the iconic food building. I’ve partnered with the CNE to give away Ride All Day passes and General Admission passes to the CNE! Sound like fun? Enter below for your chance to win!
