This flagship festival showcases the Capital’s official flower as a symbol of international friendship hosting tulip art, culinary experiences, entertainment for everyone, restaurant and hotel program participation, breathtaking fireworks set to music, guided tours, vintage military displays paying tribute to our veterans, and the WWII liberation of the Netherlands by Canadian troops; and of course, millions of tulips in bloom all the while respecting the natural, wonderful setting that is our nation’s capital.
