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! After being cancelled in 2020 and pivoting to online experiences in 2021, it’s back this year with its usual array of EXciting events!

Kids aged 4 and under are free, plus before the Ex starts you can get up to five free Kids’ Passes per person (valid for kids aged 5-13). It includes grounds admission, and access to all shows and exhibits on any one day of the 2022 CNE. Go here for more info!
