Check out 6 brand new things coming to the CNE in 2019
Ask us how ready we are to hit the midway full of corndogs. We. Are. So. Ready. The CNE is back for 2019, and it’s got all the rides, entertainment, and carnival food you’ve been waiting for! Also, it’s got a few new events and features this year, so here’s what’s new at this year’s CNE!
AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR, BUT CNE
Ever heckle the American Ninja Warriors for falling off the Mega Wall while you stuff your face with Doritos? Us too. Try your hand at the fit people stuff at the CNE’s own version of the course, the Ex Race! If you make it through, there are wicked prizes on the line. If you don’t make it through, you might have a little more respect for those jacked people on TV.
Zip into that Spiderman costume and get your spider booty into the Bandshell for the first Cosplay Day! You can dabble in a little quidditch match, win prizes, and check out the Back to the Future DeLorean in person!
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC EXHIBIT
Travel the world via a catalogue of Nat Geo’s most well-loved work! 50 of the coolest photos in their collection have been chosen for the exhibit, so it’s a super-exclusive look at the best of National Geographic across the world.
HANG OUT WITH RACCOONS
Toronto’s cuddly-yet-probably-rabid unofficial mascot is being celebrated in a big way this year! Dive into a massive pit of live raccoons and bask in all the masked fuzziness. Kidding, but there’ll be raccoon sculptures painted by the public ready for you to admire.
POP IT AND LOCK WITH WITH ILL-ABILITIES
This crew of differently-abled dancers is bringing their knockout break dancing to Toronto! Watch people do things that would probably break your femurs, and then just don’t try it at home. Okay?
GET GROOVY TO CANADIAN MUSICIANS
The music lineup at CNE is stacked this year! Check out Walk Off The Earth, Burton Cummings, and Jann Arden, among others. We’ve got our dancing shoes on! Well, we’ve got mud-stained sneakers on, but they should last through the night. Also, the shows are free. Wayho!
The 2019 CNE kicks off this weekend, so get ready for the best two weeks of the summer! We’ll be watching the Ex Race while double fisting cotton candy.
When: Friday, August 16- Monday, September 2
