For over 40 years, the Tattoo has been dazzling audiences by bringing Canada’s rich history and culture to life. As a non-for-profit and registered charity, we rely on the generous and ongoing support of donors to keep the tradition alive. These many years of success would not have been possible without the loyal support of you, our donors. We are counting on your continued support to help ensure we continue Marching Forward.
