BYWARD MARKET - The Urban Tulip Experience

Tiptoe through a garden of urban tulip art, promotions and activities created and curated by an annually appointed Featured Canadian Artist who also has had the distinction of creating this year’s Festival theme imagery – “A World of Tulips”.

Be a part of the Tulip Fest’s ‘Pop-up Uke Troupe’, a fun, participatory, family-friendly musical event. The Pop-up Uke Troupe will gather ukulele players and singers of all ages and abilities for a musical tour, experiencing the Byward Market from a busker’s perspective.


On Saturdays and Sundays of the Tulip Fest (May 11 & 12, 20 & 21), players and singers will meet at 1pm at Major Hill Park for a short rehearsal (approx. 45 minutes), in order to learn the arrangements for the chosen songs. The Uke Troupe will then move into the market to play three performances (each at a unique location) of their freshly rehearsed set.


Register today for the date you can be part of the Pop-up Uke Troupe. You’ll receive the song arrangements in advance, up to date meeting and performance locations, reminders, and maybe even some free swag!
