Using the technology of today to explore the CNE experience of the past, the Doorways to the Past project takes us on a CNE journey back in time. Four self-contained installations are situated throughout the CNE Grounds, with two different experiences featured on either side.
Guests are invited to download the AVARA app, hold their phone up to the door, and activate augmented reality experiences from the past. Friends of the CNE will also be on hand with pre-loaded iPads, if visitors choose not to download the app. Doorway stories explore four themes: Agriculture & Industry, Music, Arts & Culture, Architecture and Midway Mayhem. The same content is featured on the two sides of all four installations. The four experiences can be found in multiple locations across the grounds.
