The Canadian National Exhibition, more often called the CNE or just The Ex, has been a summer-ending tradition in Toronto since its inception in 1879! Sadly, the decision was made in May 2021 to cancel the in-person version of this year’s fair. Instead, CNE Connected was created, a membership with both free and paid virtual content. It’s packed with online experiences and various EXciting options for family-friendly at-home viewing.

Free Content

CNE Connected is bringing some EXtremely amazing FREE content to valued visitors.

  • President’s Choice SuperDogs – Contest and three brand-new trick training videos
  • Build Your Own Sand Sculpture – Lesson and contest
  • TEAM T&J – “No Harm on the Farm” songs
  • Virtual Labour Day Parade – Monday, September 6
