We know that summer’s not complete without the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) in Toronto. And finally after a two-year break, it’s back! More than a whopping 1.4 million visitors are expected to attend the event year. From new attractions and rides to all the varied F&B options, there’s plenty to look forward to at the event in August.
CNE in Toronto
One of the new featured attractions is going to be the nightly Drone Show. Over a 100 drones will be used to make colourful designs and images. You’ll be able to catch it live at 10:45pm. The drones are also part of the exhibition’s new multimedia show. NEVAEH & The NorthStar presented by VinFast will bring together state-of-the-art technological tools for a unique spectacle.
Special events at the CNE
That’s not all though. There’s going to be a slew of festivals and specials events that are new to this edition of the CNE in Toronto, which will run from August 19 to September 5 2022:
- Mardi Gras Food Truck Festival (August 20-23)
- Food Truck Frenzy & Craft Beer Fest (August 25-28)
- Celtic Food Truck Festival (September 1-5)
Previously-held events are making a comeback as well. You can expect to see the 2022 Canadian International Air show, the Gaming Garage Powered by AMD, and the Celebrity Kitchen Stage, which is making an appearance for the first time since 2017.
