Exhibition Place information
Every August, historic Exhibition Place is revived for its original purpose, the Canadian National Exhibition, when millions of visitors flood the midway for carnival rides, lumberjack competitions and more good, honest, homegrown fun than a Sunday-school picnic. The beaux-arts Victory statue over Princes' Gate has stood proud since Canada's 60th birthday in 1927. Other events held at Exhibition Place include the Honda Indy Toronto in July and a slew of spectator sports and indie design shows. At other times the grounds are often spookily bereft of visitors.
