MAJOR EVENTS IN AMSTERDAM AND AROUND THE NETHERLANDS
The Netherlands has always been a country filled with fun loving people and party seeking tourists. Fortunately, there is no shortage of events, parties and festivals in Amsterdam and other major cities around.
There is an abundance of lively Dutch events, from the colourful celebrations of King's Day and Pride Amsterdam to the lovely Tulip-related events alongside other Christian holidays like Palm Sunday and Christmas. There are a handful of Dutch music festivals graced by popular Dutch DJs like Afrojack and Tiësto. These festivals also have popular celebrities and other upcoming DJs in attendance.
Some of these festivals in the Netherlands have been celebrated for decades, and culturally, they have very strong ties to the local regions where they were started.
This guide seeks to help keep our ardent readers informed on all events in Amsterdam and in other parts of the Netherlands. The only problem will be choosing which Dutch festival to attend.
Saturday 27th of April 2019
Called 'Koningsdag' by locals, this colourful Dutch festival is a celebration of the Dutch monarch's birthday - King Willem-Alexander. This holiday is celebrated with parades and street markets, and is always marked with a spirit of 'Oranjegekte' or 'Orange Madness', reflecting the Dutch national colour.
Formerly called Queen's Day, "Koningsdag" came into being after Queen Beatrix abdicated the throne in favour of her eldest son, Willem-Alexander. This national holiday is always filled with a lot of fun and colour. Please note that activities can differ by region. A lot of nightclubs and restaurants organise activities with certain amount of tickets up for sale. The fun thing about King's Day is that the partying starts on the eve of the national holiday, which is called "Koningsavond" or in English, "Kingsnight".
The royal family always visits Amsterdam and a lot of tourists gather at the Royal Palace at the Dam Square to listen to the King give a speech.
