In the mood for a rainbow grilled cheese sandwich or perhaps a cotton candy stuffed waffle taco? Whatever your appetite, the Canadian National Exhibition has you covered. C-N-E Chief Officer John Peco says the venerable ‘Ex has something everyone including Zoomers. There’s a wine garden, the band shell with big name performers, and the stunning Asian lantern exhibit if the midway it not your thing.
But the big draw is always the food! This year, there’s everything from rainbow grilled cheese, to deep fried avocado, to pickle lemonade. Other options include cotton candy tacos, apple cheesecake poutine, and red licorice Timbit poutine. And a trip to the ‘Ex isn’t complete with the classic Tiny Tom donuts. The Canadian National Exhibition runs until September 2nd.
