This year is the Canadian Tulip Festival’s 70th anniversary! The Canadian Tulip Festival celebrates the seasonal flower’s beauty and its historic ties to Canada’s capital. The outdoor event takes place at Commissioners Park, where over 300,000 tulips bloom alongside the Rideau Canal’s picturesque Dows Lake. Access to the site and select programming is free!
Live mariachi band straight from Mexico, ballet folklorique performances, great food and drink options, as well as vendors of amazing Mexican crafts!
