Background

The Canadian Tulip Festival, the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the National Capital Commission are celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of the Netherlands with the Liberation75 Tulip. The goal is to cover the country in 1.1 Million Liberation75 Tulips in honour of the 1.1 million Canadians who served during the Second World War.

Starting in late October 2019 in Clearview Township, 450 “Liberation75 Tulip” bulbs were planted by volunteers from the Brentwood Horticultural Society, Creemore Horticultural Society and the Stayner Garden Club. The Liberation75 Tulip is an early-mid blooming hearty flower, that is bright orange with crown-shaped petals. Since 2016, Clearview Township has planted commemorative tulips and hosted a Tulip Celebration in May. The annual Clearview Tulip Day and Community BBQ has attracted between 150-200 people each year to the Fountain Park in Stayner. The tulip garden at Fountain Park is listed on Canada’s Garden Route (www.canadasgardenroute.ca).  Other special events have been held in Brentwood and Creemore to celebrate the tulip blooms.
