Ottawa Tulip Festival 2018

About this event:
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. Our millions of tulips set the stage for a celebration of authentic art, cultural, historic, culinary and family tulip experiences.
In 2018, the Festival is all about “A World of Tulips” – we welcome you to come join us in our celebration May 11 to May 21 where our yellow World Friendship Tulip is front and centre this year!. This year the festival takes place in different locations:

Commissioners Park:
Tour the one kilometre stretch of colourful and commemorative tulip beds. Learn about their history by taking guided tours or catch the Victoria Weekend fireworks.

Lansdowne Park:
Explore Canadian handmade and international tulip art, photography and floral installations, onsite workshops, special film screenings, cultural displays, international stage performances as well as children’s activities.


ByWard Tulip PARK:
Tiptoe through a garden of urban tulip art, promotions and activities created and curated by an annually appointed Featured Canadian Artist who also has had the distinction of creating this year’s Festival theme imagery – “A World of Tulips”.

Tulips on the Garden Promenade:
Explore tulips across the Capital when visiting Ottawa/Gatineau’s area gardens, and participate in Festival partner activities such as photography workshops, culinary events and even Yoga in the Tulips.
