      Description

      Exhibition Place is best known as the site of Canadian National Exhibition (CNE). This only makes sense since this lakefront area has hosted major exhibitions since the construction of the Crystal Palace exhibition hall in 1858. That landmark burned down soon after, but new buildings were built in 1878 to host the Toronto Industrial Exhibition, forerunner of the CNE. The "Ex" is still the world's largest annual exhibition, but it is only one of the many shows and exhibitions held during the course of the year at Exhibition Place. Covering 192 acres of land with landmark buildings such as the Automotive Building, the Horticultural Building, the Better Living Centre and Ricoh Coliseum, Exhibition Place hosts more than 100 events each year.Major events include the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, the National Home Show and the Molson Indy. From 1976 to 1989, Exhibition Stadium was home to the Toronto Blue Jays. The Jays may have flown that nest in favor of the Rogers Centre, but Exhibition Place continues to renew itself. The opening of the mammoth, state-of-the-art National Trade Centre ensures that Exhibition Place will be one of Canada's premiere trade show venues into the next century.Getting There: By Car: From the east: Take the Gardiner Expressway west to Spadina/Lake Shore Boulevard cutoff and follow the signs for Lakeshore Boulevard. Take Lake Shore Boulevard to the Princes' Gates (just west of Strachan Avenue). From the west: Take the Gardiner Expressway east to Lake Shore Boulevard or Jameson Avenue.
