Bring History Alive 

The Tattoo focuses on themes and milestones that helped to shape Canada as we know it. this year, the Tattoo will be celebrating:  

 The First World War

Celebrating 100 years of the end of the First World War, the Tattoo pays tribute to those lost but not forgotten, battles that changed the course of the war, and the mark it left on this country.


                       Women in Service

Women played a key and necessary role in the war effort. Let's recognise the hard work and great contributions women have made!


Battle of the Atlantic

The longest active campaign of the Second World War, the Battle of the Atlantic played a key role in keeping supply routes open for the forces  fighting on the front lines. 




Music to Your Ears 

The Tattoo is rooted in musical tradition and sees hundreds of musicians each year. Everything from the bagpipe to the fife, and even some of the more obscure instruments. The Tattoo will keep your toes tapping the whole time.
