The world’s largest tulip festival is celebrated in our Country’s Capital every May!


Join us as we indulge our senses viewing over 300,000 tulips at Commissioner’s Park. Canadian troops played a key role in liberating the Netherlands during World War 2 and in gratitude, the Dutch government has sent Canada a gift of tulip bulbs every year since 1945. This relationship inspired what is now known as the Canadian Tulip Festival celebrated in the Spring each year in Ottawa.
