The Exclusive Air Show Zone is located within Marilyn Bell Park in downtown Toronto directly in front of the Liberty Grand Entertainment Complex and Canadian National Exhibition (CNE Fair). We are surrounded by amazing parks and the exciting exhibits and rides of the CNE, as such parking is very limited and fills up early. We highly recommend looking at public transit options.
Avoid the hassle of parking and take a relaxing train ride directly to the Airshow. Get off at the Exhibition GO Station and walk through the CNE grounds (free entrance with your Exclusive Airshow Zone ticket). Once you are within the CNE grounds, head to the south end to the Bailey Bridge (near the Rose Garden). Take the bridge across and head west (away from Ontario Place). Continue along the path and you will approach the entrance to the Exclusive Airshow Zone.
Lakeshore train service runs every 30 minutes, every day of the week, between 9 am and 1 am.

Riding Your Bike
Easy To Access
To get to the Exclusive Airshow Zone, just follow the Martin Goodman Trail along the waterfront.
From the West
If you’re travelling from the west, continue on the path just past British Columbia Road. The entrance to the Exclusive Air Show Zone will be on your right within the fenced in area. Our gate staff will direct you as to where to park and lock up your bike in the Exclusive Airshow Zone.
From the East
If you’re travelling along the path from the east, continue past Ontario Place (you will go under 2 bridges which cross over to Ontario Place) and past Ontario Drive. You will see a wooden bridge (Bailey Bridge) which you will go under. Just past the bridge you will see the fenced area of the Exclusive Airshow Zone. The entrance will be on your left. Our gate staff will direct you as to where to park and lock up your bike in the Exclusive Airshow Zone.
The Martin Goodman Trail is the Toronto stretch of the Waterfront Trail, which runs along the Canadian shores of Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River.
Visitors can learn more about this trail or find details of access points by visiting the Waterfront Trail Regeneration Trust website.
The Exclusive Airshow Zone is located in Marilyn Bell park directly in front of the Liberty Grand Entertainment Complex. When inputting an address for the Canadian International Air Show (CIAS) we recommend inputting one of the parking lots mentioned below.
Our Airshow takes place during the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) fair which as you can imagine draws large crowds as well. There is limited parking available surrounding the CNE grounds, & at Ontario Place but they fill up quickly.
Parking is available at the CNE off British Columbia Road, Dufferin (near Liberty Grand) and off Manitoba Drive.
Additional parking is available at Ontario Place or in Green P parking lots along Lakeshore Blvd.
Reminder, parking fills up early especially on Airshow days so leave yourself plenty of time to get here! Better yet, take public transit!
