New this year, the CNE wants to offer you CNE specific deals and free admission to return to the fair, simply by downloading our App and walking around the grounds!

Our CNE Rewards App uses Bluetooth checkpoints throughout the grounds and when you have visited certain spots during your day, you will be sent offers in that area that are exclusive to you!

Plus, once you have used the CNE Rewards App for over 4 hours, you will automatically be sent a free return ticket to the 2017 CNE on your phone.

Data collected by CNE Rewards will be used by organizers to better understand our visitors and help refine offerings for future years. Please note all data collected remains confidential.

To be a part of this new experience, download the CNE Rewards App, connect your bluetooth and spend a day at the fair!
