Ottawa Tulip Festival
A historic royal gift. Celebrating Canada’s role in the liberation of the Netherlands In WWII
It’s that time of the year where the Canadian Tulip Festival is upon us with over a million colourful tulips in bloom in the capital. The tulips were originally presented by Netherlands as a gesture of gratitude to Canada for protecting the Royal Dutch Family during World War II. Over the years it has grown into a full-fledged festival symbolizing international friendship.
