The FESTIVAL is recognized as one of the most influential annual events in Canada
BizBash, the premier resource for event and meeting professionals in North America, has announced that the Canadian Tulip Festival has been recognized on its annual list of Top 100 Events in Canada. These influential events continually challenge the norm, push limits to evolve, and engage their audiences in an effective and meaningful way.
Ottawa’s flagship festival since 1953, the Canadian Tulip Festival is one of the largest events of its kind in the world celebrating the Capital’s official flower as a symbol of international friendship and peace. The Canadian Tulip Festival is an event of the Canadian Tulip Legacy, a non-profit charitable organization established to celebrate the historic Royal gift of tulips from the Dutch to Canadians after World War II.
“People today value experiences over things, and the Top 100 Events are events anyone would want to go to,” said Beth Kormanik, BizBash editor in chief. “They represent the best of live events and provide attendees and sponsors ideal environments to gather to exchange ideas, network, and have fun.”
“We are honoured to be chosen as one of the top 100 in Canada,” says Executive Director Michel Gauthier, adding, “and it’s wonderful to be in such great local company as the National Arts Centre Gala, the Juno Awards and Winterlude.”
