Join Our celebration of Tulip Art & Culture
Over 10 days 700,000 visitors and residents will enjoy the region’s millions of tulips in bloom and various programming elements that will enhance the tulip experience. These tulips set the stage for a celebration of authentic art, cultural, historic, culinary and family tulip experiences at various official venues.
Photographer Malak Karsh brought international fame to Ottawa with his photos of the NCC tulip beds. His stunning pictures became a springtime ritual in newspapers and magazines nationwide and around the world. And, it was Malak who inspired the Ottawa Board of Trade to establish the Canadian Tulip Festival in 1952.
Exhibit and Sell Your Photos
The Homage to Malak Karsh Photography Exhibition returns to the Aberdeen Pavilion at Lansdowne Park. Malak loved Ottawa and captured the beauty of our capital through his lens. Photographers are invited to submit their own “Beautiful Ottawa” and “Tulip” photos for possible exhibition.
