The Canadian Tulip Festival features 300,000 stunning tulips planted at Commissioner’s Park, one of the capital city’s most prestigious parks. Over the course of 18 days, performers will roam the park providing music and entertainment to visitors. There are a number of festival events and attractions to see, located all across the city. The festival offers a Tulip Passport full of discounts to Ottawa’s finest restaurants, spas and museums, along with an All Access pass to ticketed Tulip Festival events. The Passport costs only $20 and can be purchased by visiting: http://www.tulipfestival.ca/ticketspassport/tulip-passport.
The Tulip Festival has been a part of Canadian heritage and a bond with the Netherlands, originating in the gift of tulips to Canada by the Royal Dutch Family following the liberation of Europe in the Second World War. For more information on the Tulip Festival, visit: http://www.tulipfestival.ca.
