Tulip Festival

A poignant and pivotal moment in time, the Liberation of the Netherlands led by Canadian Forces, forged a friendship that has lasted over 74 years. We honour the sacrifice of brave soldiers, our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents, by keeping their memory alive. As Canadian Tulip Festival Founder Malak Karsh observed, the Gift of Tulips brought “colour back into a very gray world”. We celebrate this gift, the spirit of spring renewal.
