Canadian Tulip Festival

Spring awakening in the National Capital begins with the opening of the Canadian Tulip Festival in May. More than one million tulips line Ottawa’s scenic drive along the historic Rideau Canal to the Parliament buildings and across the Ottawa River to the Outaouais. As you take a stroll among the tulip beds and take in some tulip festivities you can also enjoy multicultural entertainment.
