Ottawa Tulip Festival in Bloom
Spring has sprung, which means Canada’s largest Tulip Festival is in bloom! From May 12th to 23rd, the country celebrates peace, freedom and international friendship with over one million tulips in 50 varieties blossoming in public spaces across the Ottawa region. Commissioners Park is just one of 30 different sites that will showcase over 300,000 flowers on the banks of Dows Lake. Celebrating its 64th year of festivities with more than 500,000 visitors, the dazzling display of colourful flowers is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before!
Some Fast Facts about the Tulip Festival
- In 1945, the Dutch royal family sent thousands of tulip bulbs to Ottawa to thank Canadians for sheltering Queen Juliana and her daughters during Nazi occupation of the Netherlands in World War II.
- Years following Queen Juliana’s original donation, Ottawa became famous for its tulips. The first Canadian Tulip Festival took place in 1953 thanks to Malak Karsh - his photographs have immortalized the tulip.
- The National Capital Commission is responsible for planting close to one million tulips every year in Ottawa.
- The festival also includes music performances, exhibits of international crafts, and fireworks displays.
