https://www.blogto.com/city/2020/05/cne-2020-cancelled/No summer in Toronto is complete with a trip to the CNE, but according to the mayor, the chances of the fair happening this year is "unlikely".
On Tuesday morning, Mayor John Tory said in an interview with CP24 that the Canadian National Exhibition probably won't be taking place at the end of August.
The annual fair, which draws approximately 1.5 million visitors to Exhibition Place every year, just doesn't seem probable on what appears to be the tail-end of the global pandemic's worst wave.
"I think the notion that we are going to go back to big crowd scenes like that... seems unlikely," said Tory. "But I guess we haven't made that judgment yet.”
All major events in the city have been cancelled until June 30, including a number of festivals and parades like Caribbean Carnival, Pride Parade, Fringe Festival, and Canada Day celebrations.
According to The Ex, it's been working directly with all levels of government and public health agencies "in preparations" for the fair, which would take place August 21 to September 7.
While it appears there's a tiny glimmer hope things in Toronto might turn around by then, Mayor Tory says he "wouldn't bet on it."
Keep an eye out late June or early July for that
Fellow Air Show fans, we are extremely sad to announce that we are unable to hold the 2020 Canadian International Air Show (CIAS). The extraordinary circumstances and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the risk to public safety has brought us to this difficult and unfortunate decision. In partnership with our presenting sponsor, the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE), we have chosen to jointly cancel our 2020 events based on recommendations by Government and Health Officials. This is the first time in 70 years the CIAS has cancelled.
We want to thank all of our Sponsors, Partners, Volunteers and of course Air Show fans. Stay tuned for more info on our online event planned for Labour Day weekend. We look forward to bringing an exciting Air Show to Toronto over Labour Day weekend 2021. Thank you all for your understanding and continued support.
Special thanks to all those working on the front line to help combat the spread of Covid-19.
