Heritage Pavilion

Explore the Festival’s roots and step back in time at the Canadian Tulip Festival’s NEW Heritage Pavilion. Experience the real-life sacrifice that took place right here in Ottawa in 1945.

Our soldiers were overseas, and their anxious family members were at home, waiting for word of their safe return.  Meet the faces and hear from story-tellers the experiences of veterans from WWII, people who left their homes to join the fight for freedom halfway across the world.

Our Heritage Pavilion also offers guests the chance to shop for antiques and artisan crafts of the immediate post-war era. There will also be an outdoor patio, which will provide comfortable covered seating for folks to indulge in the wide array of Gourmet Food Trucks available throughout Commissioners Park.
