Bloomex: Lead Sponsor of the 2016 Canadian Tulip Festival




The Canadian Tulip Festival is in full swing yet again! One of the largest events in Canada, the Festival attracts over 600,000 visitors to Canada's capital each year. 



Ottawa has been host to the Festival since 1953, celebrating the legacy of the tulip which symbolizes the strong bonds of friendship between Canada and the Netherlands. 




In 1945, 100,000 tulip bulbs were sent as a gift from Princess Juliana of the Netherlands to Ottawa, in appreciation of the safe refuge that members of Holland’s exiled royal family were given here during World War II, as well as in tribute to the support given by Canadian troops in the liberation of the Netherlands. 
 

Ranked the world’s largest tulip festival, the Canadian Tulip Festival offers visitors the chance to enjoy over a million tulips in more than 50 varieties blooming in the area. The largest concentration can be found along the banks of Dow's Lake, where over 300,000 tulips bloom in an abundance of colour.
Since 1953, the Canadian Tulip Festival has been celebrating the legacy of the tulip, Ottawa’s flower, which symbolizes the strong bonds of friendship between Canada and the Netherlands, forged in Canada’s role in the Liberation of the Netherlands during the Second World War.
Ranked the world’s largest tulip festival, the Canadian Tulip Festival offers festival-goers the opportunity to explore the colourful tulips in bloom, Dutch culture, an International Pavilion, Ikebana workshops, and be entertained by a diversity of music artists as well as captivating fireworks.
