Withrow Common

Withrow Common

An initiative of the Canadian National Exhibition Association (CNEA), Withrow Common is an exciting community event space located at Toronto’s Exhibition Place, across from the Princess Margaret Fountain.

The 2,675 square-foot venue lives in the west side of the Queen Elizabeth Building complex, which was constructed in 1957.

The building was originally envisioned as the CNE’s Women’s Building and was renamed the Queen Elizabeth Building in 1957. It has a long and rich history of hosting exhibits and educational events. Most recently, the space served as the Executive Offices for the Exhibition Place Board of Governors.

In 2016, the CNEA won a bid to redevelop these offices as a multi-purpose gallery space to facilitate events and workshops for the neighbouring community and beyond.

The renovation of the space was completed in 2017. The CNEA’s overall design concept for the renovation of the building was to honour its mid-century Modernist history, while embracing a clean, simple and contemporary look.
