The Canadian Tulip Festival celebrates the beauty of this seasonal flower and its historical ties to Canada’s capital. 

The festival began with a special gift. The Royal Family of the Kingdom of the Netherlands took refuge in Ottawa during the Second World War, and Her Royal Highness, Princess Margriet was born here in 1943. Two years later, Canadian troops played a key role in liberating the Netherlands. In gratitude, the Dutch government has sent Canada a gift of tulip bulbs every year since 1945, inspiring what has become the Canadian Tulip Festival. 

The tulip an international symbol of friendship and peace.
