Our first King’s Day
King’s Day used to be Queen’s Day and is a unique day on which all of Amsterdam turns into one big outdoor party. There is a flea market for children at the Vondelpark, street parties, and shows and performances on every square, while the canals fill up with leisure boats full of partying people. Come to Amsterdam this spring and celebrate this national holiday with us! Most importantly: don’t forget to bring orange clothes and accessories!
All of Holland celebrates
Naturally King’s Day is not just celebrates in Amsterdam but throughout the country. For instance in The Hague, where the entire evening and night before King’s Day are filled with one big party and many shows. Or in Utrecht, which hosts a huge flea market every year. There are big kermissen or fairs throughout the country and every city and village celebrates this unique holiday in its own individual way.
