It’s been a pretty eventful summer in Toronto this year and with the CNE back in action, we can only expect the fun to keep on rolling. If you’re one of those people who have been out and about, spending as fast as you’re earning, you may be looking for inexpensive ways to have fun in the city.

We all know how expensive the CNE can be – it adds up, but what if you could get tickets on the low this summer? Believe us, you can!

After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, you can expect this year’s CNE to be huge. It’ll definitely be jam-packed, not just with people but with new and exciting things to try from its wild food creations to new entertainment experiences.

Tickets are on sale for the almost three-week event but if you’re a savvy buyer, you may notice you can get your hands on cheaper tickets on certain dates.
