PLUS — FREE admission to the 2022 CNE with subscription
Ontario’s end of summer tradition is returning online again in a new interactive platform that brings the CNE experience right at home. The Canadian National Exhibition is introducing CNE Connected, a one-time subscription to access exclusive free and paid online content through to the fall; and in true spirit of CNE fun, there are plenty of prizes to be won including a 10-piece Meyer Cookware set valued at $1,000.
The CNE Connected subscription is $22 (plus HST) and comes with a complimentary General Admission ticket to the 2022 CNE (a value of $19.99) – which means membership is equivalent to just $2 to enjoy more than a dozen virtual events and activities from cooking with celebrity chefs to music classes, arts, gaming, yoga, and more! There’s also plenty of free programming at TheEx.com to continue the CNE tradition including the President’s Choice SuperDogs shows, skating shows, and a special tribute commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Warriors’ Day Parade.
The CNE annually attracts more than 1.4 million visitors to its event; however, in light of the City of Toronto’s decision to cancel all permitted large festivals through to September, organizers have been vocal about the financial impact of closing its gates for the second year in a row that has put the fair in a deficit of millions.
Help bring back the CNE in 2022 while enjoying fun family content by becoming a subscriber!
