The Canadian National Exhibition (CNE), also known as The Exhibition or The Ex, is an annual event held at Exhibition Place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada during the last eighteen days before Canadian Labor Day, the first Monday in September. . With approximately 1.5 million visitors annually, it is Canada's largest trade show and the sixth largest in North America. The first Canadian National Exhibition dates back to 1879, primarily to promote agriculture and technology in Canada. Engineers and scientists exhibited their discoveries and inventions at the CNE to showcase the nation's work and talent. As Canada grew as a nation, the CNE reflected the growth of diversity and innovation, although agriculture and technology remained an important part of the CNE. For many people in the Greater Toronto Area and surrounding communities, the CNE is an annual family tradition.
