This year we had planned to hold a Vintage Victory Parade, to celebrate the Liberation of the Netherlands, 75 years ago. Our plan was to encourage festival goers to dress in their best 1940’s gear, and join us to celebrate freedom.
Now, we ask the public to help us take the Party online! Recreate ONE of the FOUR Famous Images below from the Second World War homecoming, share and tag with #TulipTogether to be entered to WIN an incredible VIP All-Access 3-Day Weekend at the 2021 Canadian Tulip Festival, in cooperation with the Hilton Garden Inn – Ottawa Downtown.
Watch for more ways to participate on our social media channels. Updates will be added throughout the festival.
Veterans Affairs Canada’s mandate is to support the well-being of Veterans and their families, and to promote recognition and remembrance of the achievements and sacrifices of those who served Canada in times of war, military conflict and peace.
We’re in downtown, four blocks from the Parliament of Canada, and five blocks from Ottawa City Hall. The Ottawa River and Victoria Island are less than a kilometer away. The Canadian War Museum and the ByWard market are both within two kilometers. Enjoy all-day dining in the Tulip restaurant. Our Pavilion Pantry is open 24 hours for drinks and snacks.
