The Nautique WWA Wakeboard World Championships will be held at Toronto’s CNE Waterfront from Aug. 25-28 during the Canadian National Exhibition.

The exhibition is held annually at Toronto’s Exhibition Place over 18 days, concluding on Canadian Labour Day.

The 2016 CNE will take place from Aug. 19 to Sept. 5 and is the largest annual fair in Canada and the fifth-largest in North America, Nautique said. About 1.5 million visitors attend each year to enjoy shows and attractions promoting and celebrating Canada’s growth as a nation.

“We are thrilled to hosting the Nautique WWA Wakeboard World Championships at the CNE this August,” CNE general manager Virginia Ludy said in a statement. “This is an exhilarating and exciting new addition to our entertainment offering, which also enables us to reignite the CNE’s long-standing tradition of presenting events on Toronto’s western waterfront.”

Top wakeboarders and wakeskaters from around the globe in every division will compete to become the 2016 World Champion and Nautique Wake Series Overall Champion behind the award-winning Super Air Nautique G23.

“Nautique is excited to bring the highest level of wakeboarding competition to downtown Toronto during the 2016 CNE,” Nautique president Greg Meloon said. “This world-class venue provides the perfect setting for our Nautique WWA World Championships and spectators will have the opportunity to experience wakeboarding at its best.”
