CNE adds Star Trek-themed bar & trivia nights for 2016

Live long and prosper at the Canadian National Exhibition this year. It may seem a little early to get excited, but the Ex opens in just over three weeks (there's still plenty of summer left, don't worry!). Along with the usual outrageous food, midway games and carnival rides, the CNE is hosting a Star Trek exhibition to celebrate the series' 50th anniversary this year.

It'll include pieces by 50 artists from 10 different countries as well as photographs by the late Leonard Nimoy.

When the CNE opens on August 19, dedicated Trekkies can look forward to visiting a pop up shop, a theme bar and participating in trivia nights. That should get you pumped for when the new Star Trek series starts filming in Toronto this fall.

And if Star Trek's not your thing, there's still plenty to look forward to at this year's CNE. The figure skating show, for instance, will feature three-time world champion Elvis Stojko from August 23 to 25.
