I love the CNE, and I’m not alone! Every year, about 1.6 million people head to the CNE with their families and friends. Here’s what you can expect at the Exhibition this year!
Of course, food is a huge deal at the CNE! This summer, visitors can sink their teeth into some interesting new combinations.
Fran’s Restaurant will have a Bacon Croissundae : maple bacon and vanilla ice cream sandwiched in a croissant. Or how about a Fried Pig Ear Sandwich: Crispy coated pig ears, coleslaw, maple bacon, cheddar cheese with spicy chipotle aioli from Farm to Fryer? The 3 S UM Burger is internationally inspired with Italian meatballs, Canadian mac ‘n cheese, and Greek fries topped with feta cheese, coleslaw and bacon at Corrado’s Authentic Italian. I personally will be looking out for Cookie Dough Me, where they’ll be serving deep fried cookie dough balls.
Waterfront Shows : The CNE returns to the waterfront for the first time in decades thanks to a $5.5 million infrastructure investment by the City of Toronto and the Province of Ont ario to rehabilitate the West Channel watersports course just south of the CNE grounds. New Waterfront programming features a daily waterfront show, The Great Canadian Water Ski Caper , the Nautique Canadian Wakesurf Nationals on opening weekend (August 19 to 21), and the Nautique WWA Wakeboard World Championships (August 25 to 28)
Food Truck Frenzy & Craft Beer Fest : One of Canada’s largest food truck rallies just got bigger with six NEW food trucks ready to take position along Princes’ Blvd. from Aug ust 26 to 28 ! Foodies can rejoice in 25 unique offerings from Toronto’s trendiest food innovators including FeasTO and Made in Brazil , previous winners of Food Network Canada’s Food Truck Face O ff . Enjoy a refreshing cold one in the heart of the Food Truck Frenzy from 10 local master brewers including Muskoka Brewing Inc., Wel lington Brewery , and Beaus All Natural Brewing Company.
67th Annual Canadian International Air Show: The excitement of the CNE culminates on Labour Day Weekend as the thrilling Canadian Int ernational Air Show (CIAS) soars over Lake Ontario for another awe – inspiring show featuring performances by the Breitling Jet Team, CF – 19 Hornet , U.S. Navy F/A legacy Hornet, The Grumman Mohawk, Canadian Forces Snowbirds and many more!
Thanks to the CNE, I’m sending you and a friend to the CNE this summer! 1 winner will win 2 Ride All Day passes, and 10 other winners will get 2 General Admission passes. Enter below!

How bad is it I’ve never had food at the Ex? I’ve only been once and it wasn’t even for a full day! I would try anything sweet!

I’ve never been to the CNE so I don’t have a favourite Ex food, but I’d be all over trying any kind of dessert. I have such a sweet tooth.
