The EXtravaganza of New Attractions:

The grand finale week promises an array of captivating attractions that you wouldn’t want to miss. One of the showstoppers is the all-new Superwheel, soaring 150 feet above the CNE Midway. With 36 enclosed observation pods, it offers an unparalleled 360-degree view of the vibrant Toronto skyline. Whether it’s daytime people-watching, capturing the nightly drone show from above, or marveling at the new fountain extravaganza, the Sparkling Symphony, the Superwheel is destined to be your next Instagram hotspot.

Thrill-seekers can’t afford to overlook the Monster Compound, where the Monster Energy Skateboard Team showcases their skills on a custom halfpipe. At the Enercare Centre, the Cirque-tacular Spectacular outdoor acrobatic and trampoline show will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Amped-Up Entertainment:

For the first time ever, Toronto’s iconic drag queen, Tynomi Banks, and her fellow queens Mo Heart, Jan Sport, and Ivory Towers will sashay their way onto the CNE Bandshell Stage on August 29th for a Drag EXtravaganza. Meanwhile, the fabulous Fay & Fluffy will enchant young hearts with their renowned drag storytime at the all-new Storybook Nook in Kids’ World.

Returning Classics with a Twist:

The CNE’s beloved classics are back, bigger and better. The nightly Drone Show Presented by VinFast promises even more drones and awe-inspiring formations lighting up the night sky. The Gaming Garage Sponsored by Intel has leveled up, offering more free games and exhilarating tournaments, including Street Fighter 6, Valorant, and League of Legends.
