Experience The Fun Of The CNE At Home!
The CNE tradition continues! While you may not be able to visit the 2020 CNE this summer, since the event was cancelled due to COVID-19, that doesn't mean you can't check out some of your favourite fair features online.
This year, the CNE will be offering many virtual programs for families to enjoy. Relive past shows or check out new exclusive online performances from some of your favourite CNE skaters, musical acts and park performers. Other offerings include: an online gaming experience, puzzles and games, virtual tours, cooking demonstrations, daily contests and more. Complete programming will be announced on the CNE website in the coming weeks.
In the meantime...
Kids can get creative and colour in the parts of the CNE they are most excited about seeing again in 2021. Click here to download CNE Colouring pages. The CNE is asking to see your colourful creations so snap a photo of your masterpiece and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org for your chance to have your artwork featured on the CNE website.
If your kids are looking for a fun, fair-themed challenge they can do from home, check out virtual jigsaw puzzles online. Click here to put your skills to the test by putting CNE images back together.

CNE Zoom Backgrounds
Tired of the same backgrounds you've been using for the past few months? Now you can place yourself at the CNE from the comfort of your own home with virtual backgrounds. Kids can chat with friends from the middle of the CNE midway or take a trip back in time to a CNE scene from the past. Click here to view the gallery of free CNE Zoom Backgrounds.
