Royal Agricultural Winter Fair is
an annual fall fair in Toronto. It
is held at the Exhibition Place in
early November of each year. Started
in 1922 it was held at the Horse Palace
and is now at the National Trade Centre.
Exhibition Place is on the Toronto
lakeshore, a few kilometers west of
the central downtown. Every August
the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE)
is held on the grounds, with games
and a midway being the primary attraction.
The CNE is considered the largest
and most successful fair of its kind
in the entire North American continent
and is an important part of the culture
of Toronto and Canada itself. The
grounds have been partly protected
from further development because of
the considerable amount of heritage
associated with the annual fair and
the many buildings it is held in;
several of those buildings are protected.
