World’s largest tulip festival happens in Ottawa, Canada every year to welcome spring which is also known as Canadian Tulip Festival. Usually, the dates are between 2nd week of May till end of May and in 2019 it happened from 10th May till 20th May. Visitors can experience around 1 million Tulips during the festival. Unfortunately, due to cold weather many tulips were not grown fully until 15th of May when we took these pictures. Ottawa Tulip Festival is held at Commissioner’s park opposite to Dow’s lake. Moreover, tulip festival is free of cost for visitors, but if you opt for attending some programs, it might be of some charge, do check them.
