Relive the fun of the CNE with a new online game based on the iconic Toronto event
This summer marked the eagerly-awaited return of the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) after a gruelling two-year hiatus, and unsurprisingly, it was one of the event's busiest years yet, with crowds excited to head back to Exhibition Place and hit up some carnival rides, try some wacky food and drink, shop, and, of course, play some midway games.
And though The Ex's 18-day run has sadly passed until next summer, there are still ways to experience the fun of the fair during the interim.
In 2021, the CNE went digital with CNE Connected, an online platform that'll make you feel like it's summer in Toronto anytime, with virtual parties and performances, chef cook-alongs, and more fun demonstrations, contests, and games.
Now the CNE is celebrating a re-launch of the platform on theex.com with a brand-new online game – Plushie Pursuit: A CNE Mystery Game, in which you can help CNE security find the hundreds of stuffed prizes that were mysteriously stolen from the midway just minutes before the gates opened!
Configured for desktop play, the game on CNE Connected is just one of the ways the CNE is helping keep the energy of the the Ex going until you can get back there again in person.
