A Celebration of the Gift of Tulips
and Canada’s Role in the Liberation of the Netherlands during the Second World War

The Canadian Tulip Festival returns locally & online in 2021, May 14 – 24.

What does “Locally” mean? 

The Canadian Tulip Festival is planning for CoVid Level Orange this May 2021.

Unfortunately for all of us, travel is discouraged at this time. National & International fans of the festival are asked to stay home and experience the gift of tulips through our immersive virtual experience at www.tulipfestival.ca. Should restrictions change, we will update accordingly because we’d love to see everyone too!

For those who live in Ottawa, Commissioner’s Park at Dow’s Lake will feature over 300,000 tulips in bloom for a safe, strolling experience offering the horticulture and heritage of our 69-year-old festival.

Admission to our Festival site at Commissioners Park is FREE!

Parking & Gift Shop at Queen Juliana Parkwill be open from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm EST daily.

  • Parking is $10 per day.

All proceeds go towards the continuation of the Canadian Tulip Legacy, a registered charity.

We look to welcome the world for our 70th Anniversary Platinum Jubilee, May 13 – 23, 2022.
