The CNE is Canada’s largest annual fair and TORONTO’s family tradition. “Let’s Go To The Ex!” is the well-known slogan for an event that attracts about 1.5-million visitors annually from the city and surrounding communities.
The 18-day fair mixes shopping, rides, games, sports, a casino, midway, agriculture, entertainment, food, and the Canadian International Air Show on Labour Day weekend. Visit the website – https://theex.com/
