The CNE is back for another year! This is a yearly summer tradition that I never miss. The CNE is in town from Aug 16 – Sept 2, 2019. Last summer, a whopping 1.5 million people attended the fair. So what’s new this year?
CNE will host the Canadian premiere of the traveling exhibition “50 Greatest Photographs of National Geographic,” comprised of iconic images that defined the 21st century ranging from the striking portrait of Afghan Girl by photographer Steve McCurry, to a haunting photo of The Titanic taken 4000m below sea.
The breathtaking Legends of the Silk Road Come to Light lantern display is back, and there will be free performances from musical guests such as Jann Arden, Walk Off the Earth and more. Plane buffs can check out the 70th anniversary of the Canadian International Air Show featuring the return of Britain’s renowned Red Arrows (last appeared at the CNE in 2002).
Of course, there’s always old favourites like the Food Building, Ferris wheel, swing ride (my personal favourite!) and the various festivals that happen throughout the Ex. Foodies can look forward to Oktoberfest, Food Truck Frenzy, and more.
I’m giving you and your friends the chance to win tickets to the CNE! Grand prize winners will receive 2 Ride All Day passes, and runner up winners will receive 4 General Admission passes. Enter below and good luck!
