About the Canadian Tulip Festival
The Canadian Tulip Festival has been celebrating the tulip since 1953. The Canadian Tulip Festival was established to celebrate the historic Royal gift of tulips from the Dutch to Canadians immediately following the Second World War as a symbol of friendship. The Festival preserves the memorable role of the Canadian troops in the liberation of the Netherlands and Europe, as well as commemorates the birth of Dutch Princess Margriet in Ottawa during World War II—the only royal personage ever born in Canada. The tulip was proclaimed the City of Ottawa's Official Flower in 2002, and is now recognized worldwide as a symbol of friendship and peace. Each year, Canada's most vibrant festival attracts over 650,000 visitors from around the world to celebrate the return of spring and take in the showcase of tulips across Ottawa and its national capital region.
