The Canadian National Exhibition Features Something For Everyone

Last year, over 1.601 million visitors enjoyed the Canadian National Exhibition. The festival enjoys high attendance for good reason—just check out their list of what’s on. There will be a Star Trek art exhibition, opportunities to see celebrity chefs live on stage, and a crowd-pleasing acrobatics and ice skating show. Did we mention opportunities to shop for everything from arts and crafts to sunglasses and cake?

The Opening Ceremonies on August 19 will launch the Exhibition’s 138th year. Since its founding in 1879, the celebration has introduced patrons to the phonograph (1888), the radio (1922), television (1939), and virtual reality (1992).

There’s so much to check out—start planning now. Purchase tickets for yourself or a group
