The Canadian Tulip Festival

Time:10:00am - 5:00pm
"A World of Tulips" – Since 1953, Canada’s most colourful festival celebrates the tulip, Ottawa’s official flower and an international symbol of friendship and peace, through arts and culture. Our millions of tulips set the stage for a celebration of authentic art, cultural, historic, culinary and family tulip experiences at 4 official venues. At Commissioners Park – Dows Lake, tour the 1 KM stretch of colourful and commemorative tulip beds and learn their history with guided tours or catch the Victoria Weekend fireworks. At Lansdowne Park find Canadian handmade and international tulip art, photography and floral installations and workshops, cultural displays and international stage performances, plus children’s activities. Head to the ByWard Market to tiptoe through a garden of urban tulip art, promotions and activities created and curated by artist Monique Martin. Explore Tulips across the capital when you visit gardens on the Garden Promenade. Uniquely Canadian and one of the largest events of its kind in the world!
