70th Anniversary celebration
Join us for a 70th Anniversary celebration of the flower that symbolizes an historic friendship between peoples.
Artists in the park
Watch artists at work among the Tulip beds capturing and interpreting the beauty of the many varieties and colours of this year’s Tulips.
Vintage military enactment
Vintage military vehicles and re-enactors animate an interactive WWII encampment on the opening weekend, May 9th and 10th bringing the story of the Liberation to life.
Four spectacular nights of fireworks
Don’t miss this year’s tribute fireworks to veterans and other floral fireworks displays celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Liberation.
Memorialize magic moments with photos of your children in the popular and whimsical Tea Party topiary.
Enjoy the music
Relax to the sound of what suits your taste, from orchestral music in the Tulips to top emerging musical talent in the Liberation Bar & Grill.
Don’t miss this year’s new sculptures-in-the-park addition commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Liberation, including the “Princess” sculpture of Queen Juliana with Princess Margriet, born in Ottawa during WWII, the only royal personage ever born in North America.
Lots to entertain children of all ages, from clowns with a modern twist to “Cirque de Liberation” animators and photo ops with the “Princess”.
French language speakers can stay engaged and entertained on topical subjects without missing a beat as part of the televised broadcast of "Entre Nous" live from Commissioner’s Park.
