Nothing says the end of summer more than the Canadian National Exhibition. Yet again, here is an opportunity to enjoy Canada’s best.
The Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) was founded in 1879 for the purpose of fostering the development of agriculture, industry and the arts. Originally called the Toronto Industrial Exhibition, the name was officially changed to the Canadian National Exhibition in 1912 to better represent what the fair had become: “A Show Window of the Nation.” The CNE continued to grow and to reflect the changes in Canadian society as the emphasis slowly shifted from Agriculture to Industry. By 1912, the fairgrounds covered close to 350 acres and included one of the finest amusement parks and permanent exhibition facilities in the world. To learn more about their history and enjoy images from their past, please visit www.cneheritage.com. In 2015, the CNE attracted 1.601 million visitors to the fair.
Each year, more than one million people visit the Toronto Star Food Building for the unique experience that makes it a Toronto institution. With local restaurants serving cuisines from around the world, offering a vibrant and varied mix of international flavours and traditional fair favourites, there really is something to suit every taste and budget.
Their listings are categorized by region, type and dietary restrictions. Looking for halal, dairy free, gluten free, peanut free, vegetarian, raw or other healthy alternatives? We offer it!
The Food Building is located west of the GO/TTC Gate and directly north of BMO Field. Please refer to the CNE Map for the exact location.
PLEASE NOTE: All buildings close at 7 pm on Labour Day Monday
