3rd Annual Canadian Tulip Festival Swing Dance
Friday, May 11 at 7:30 PM - 11:30 PM
Save the date! The third annual Canadian Tulip Festival Swing Dance will be held on Friday May 11th, 2018 – on Opening Night of the 2018 Canadian Tulip Festival (www.tulipfestival.ca). The Swing Dance is produced in collaboration with the Ottawa Swing Dance Society (www.swingottawa.ca) and the Standing Room Only big band and fits very nicely into the Tulip Festival’s integrated theme of VE Day and the Liberation of the Netherlands (‘party like it’s 1945’), and the Netherlands’ gift of tulips to Canada in the 1940s. Due to its tremendous success in 2016 and 2017, the Canadian Tulip Festival Swing Dance, which includes an introductory swing dance lesson taught by OSDS instructors (photo), has become an established annual event. In 2018 the Swing Dance will move from Lansdowne Park’s Aberdeen Pavilion at to the adjacent Horticulture Building, which will have a dance floor that can accommodate about a thousand (!) swing dancers. Mark your calendar and don't miss this amazing once a year event. Information about ticket purchasing will be provided when available in March 2018.
