The City of Toronto says it is canceling all major personal events, in nature until September 6 for the second year in a row to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Some of the canceled events include the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE), Caribbean Carnival, Honda Indy and Danforth Tasting (full list below).
The city had previously canceled major events until July 1 but extended it until September, affecting all festivals and summer activities.
“The city understands the importance of these events to the vitality, livelihood and prosperity of Toronto,” city officials said Friday. “The city is committed to working closely with event organizers to help them manage by 2021 and come back stronger in 2022.”

All event organizers were given prior notice of the decision and officials said the organizers had requested an early decision on the events due to the logistics and support going into event planning.
When it comes to CNE, the city said it would support The Ex as it did when the event was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic.
What will happen in the coming months will be an important milestone for the organization and legacy of Canada’s largest fair, said Darrell Brown, CNE Executive Director.
Today’s announcement by the City means the CNE will have to reassess financial viability to survive a second consecutive year of lost revenue reaching up to $ 70 million, Brown said.
