Carillon Tower

The Carillon was manufactured in the Netherlands by the Royal Eijsbouts Bell Foundry, a company world-renowned for its carillons, bells, belfries, tower clocks and bronze art work.  The Carillon stands 85 feet high and contains 50 bells ranging from 8 to 60 inches in size and 30 to 4800 pounds in weight.

When first constructed, the bells could be operated manually by a carillonneur or automatically with a roll player and computerized tapes.  By the late 1990s, the roll player was no longer operational.  Part way up the base of the tower and just below the bell tier is a compartment displaying figures based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, "The Young Swineherd." These figures moved when activated by the carillonneur but are no longer operational.  

Originally known as the Carlsberg Carillon, the structure was presented to the CNE in 1974 by Carling-O'Keefe Breweries.  Located south-east of the Horticulture Building, the Carillon is one of only eleven such instruments in Canada, nine of them currently playable.
The 1990s to 2017
The planning phase at Exhibition Place has been a long one, starting in 1879 and continuing through to today. With attention now focused on the re-generation of Toronto's waterfront, future changes may be on the horizon, allowing Exhibition Place to play a key role in the re-development and integration of the waterfront.

Enercare Centre
Completely built by March, 1997, Enercare Centre (formerly the National Trade Centre) is the first showpiece of Exhibition Place. It is the largest convention and exhibition centre in Canada and the sixth largest in North America, offering over one million square feet of exhibit space.
BMO Field
Since 2007, BMO Field has welcomed over a million fans and has hosted a multitude of events including the MLS Cup in 2010, the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, and International Rugby and Lacrosse games. Originally, this site had been home to four Grandstands built between 1879 and 1948. In the 1970s, a sports stadium was added to the south side of the 1948 Grandstand. The Grandstand and Stadium were demolished in 1999. In 2007, MLSE opened BMO Field, Canada’s first soccer-specific stadium and official home of the Toronto FC and the Toronto Argonauts.
Beanfield Centre
Completely renovated and reopened by October 2009, Beanfield Centre (formerly the Automotive Building) is the second showpiece of Exhibition Place. Beanfield Centre combines history and state-of-the-art technology. The 160,000 square foot facility incorporates today’s most advanced technological innovations, while remaining respectful to the historical aspects of the former Automotive Building.
