Let’s go to the Ex! Fun for the whole family! Exciting entertainment from buskers, samba dancers, live big-name Bandshell music, pyrotechnics, stuntmen to acrobats and the Air Show’s Snowbirds;  fanciful food, from corn dogs, cotton candy, to the unique culinary offerings of the Food Building;

engaging games from the stuffed animal stands to the blackjack casino tables; riveting rides such as the kiddie Midway, zip line, Polar Express, to the sky ride; and sensational shopping from the Arts, Crafts and Hobbies Pavilion, International Pavilion to the Marketplace and Warehouse Outlets.

All that and much much more, such as farm animals to show dogs and horses, to please the expected 1.3 million visitors at the Canadian National Exhibition, Canada’s largest annual community event and a Toronto tradition since its inception in 1879.
