A Celebration of the Gift of Tulips
and Canada’s Role in the Liberation of the Netherlands in WWII

The Canadian Tulip Festival returns on-line and local-only in 2021, May 14 – 24.

For those who live within walking or cycling distance to Commissioner’s Park, over 300,000 Tulips will be in bloom for a safe, strolling experience. 
Regional, National & International fans of the festival are asked to stay home and have the Tulips brought to you through our virtual experience at www.tulipfestival.ca 
We hope to welcome the world for our Platinum 70th Anniversary Jubilee, May 13 – 23, 2022. 

What to Expect on www.tulipfestival.ca in 2021

With the return of on-line favourites such as our Live Check-Ins, Aerial Photography and 360 Garden Tours, online guests can get a flower’s view to 27 Garden Beds featuring over 130 breeds of Tulips. 
Shop in our online Tulip Boutique for local handcrafted Tulip-Themed pieces, or purchase some Fresh Cut Rembrandt Blend Tulips for curb-side pick up at locations all across Ottawa – perfect for the Month of May and Mother’s Day!
Prepare for our Platinum Jubilee and pre-order a selection of our “Classic Bulbs” for this year’s fall fundraiser, and you can plant the World Friendship Tulip, the Canada150, the National Velvet and other Favourites! 
Be sure to tune into TulipTV on YouTube, and celebrate Canada’s role in the liberation of the Netherlands 76 years ago, and meet the heroes commemorated with the Dutch gift of Tulips.  
Remember – Keep Calm and Tulip On!
