The Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) is warning event-goers to steer clear of purchasing their tickets through a discounted admission website –

The website advertises CNE tickets for $11.02, a rate $8 lower than the cost of regular adult admission.

“Users have indicated that the website collects their personal information and credit card data respecting the requested ticket purchase but then does not make the tickets available for download or pickup,” according to a news release by the CNE on Saturday.

Ludy said the only places to buy exhibition tickets is on the official website,, at the gates or at GO Transit stations.
