Interpretive Tulip Legacy Display

May 5-21

The Tulip Legacy Display celebrates the historic Royal gift of tulips from the Dutch to Canadians as a symbol of international friendship while preserving the legacy of the role of the Canadian troops in the liberation of Europe. The display also commemorates the birth of Dutch Princess Margriet in Ottawa during World War II—the only royal personage ever born in Canada. These historical circumstances led to the creation of the Canadian Tulip Festival as it is today.
