Canada’s Tulip Festival has been celebrated since World War II as a symbolic representation of the friendship between Netherlands and Canada when Juliana, the queen of Netherlands, along with her children, took refuge in Canada.
Since then 10,000 tulip bulbs are sent every year to Ottawa by both the Dutch royal family and the International Flower Bulb Center.
You’ll see demonstrations of flowing Japanese calligraphy and exhibits of delicate Russian nesting dolls. Several traditional concerts are also performed by the international musicians at the Friendship Stage.
Try the classic Quebecois dish of French fries, Ottawa's own Beaver Tails (deep-fried dough covered in butter, sugar and cinnamon), and squeaky cheese curds in brown gravy.
Canada's Tulip Festival provides a wonderful lifetime experience to visitors.
Check out the timeshare rentals available throughout Canada.
