Check Out the All-New Secret Menu at This Year’s CNE

presented by Dairy Farmers of Ontario!

You know that the Canadian National Exhibition is popular for the unofficial end of summer celebrations; from the Midway to live performances and concerts, to shopping and of course – the epic food items that get whackier by the year.

From ice cream to cheeseburgers, and even deep fried butter, the CNE is home to some of Canada’s favourite carnival foods.

This summer, to celebrate these extraordinary treats, Dairy Farmers of Ontario presents the CNE’s Secret Menu, providing you with mouth-watering foods made with high-quality, local Ontario dairy.

The dairy products enjoyed in many of your favourite treats, as well as those included in some of the CNE Secret Menu options, are produced by local dairy farming families who are proud to supply fresh, great tasting dairy to the communities they live and work in across Ontario.
