Ottawa Tulip Festival and 2017 Festivities

On behalf of Members of Ottawa City Council, I am delighted to welcome visitors to the Canadian Tulip Festival, taking place in the heart of Canada’s capital from May 12th to 22nd 2017. Since 1953, the Canadian Tulip Festival has been celebrating the legacy of the tulip, Ottawa’s flower, which symbolizes the strong bonds of friendship between Canada and the Netherlands, forged in Canada’s role in the Liberation of the Netherlands during the Second World War. Ranked the world’s largest tulip festival, the Canadian Tulip Festival offers festival-goers the opportunity to explore the colourful tulips in bloom, Dutch culture, an International Pavilion, Ikebana workshops, and be entertained by a diversity of music artists as well as captivating fireworks. Ottawa looks forward to your visit. Sincerely,

Jim Watson
