Have A Taste Of Holland - Dutch King's Day 2018
Los Angeles - You know you are at a Dutch event, when surrounded by people decked out in phenomenal orange attire to celebrate the birthday of King Willem Alexander of the Netherlands. Dutch King's Day is a national holiday in the Netherlands and is observed by the Dutch around the globe. The largest King's Day Party in the world happens in Amsterdam on April 27th - the official birthday of the King. The largest Orange Party in Southern California is presented by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, at the Shoreline Aquatic Park in Long Beach on April 29th.
This family friendly, outdoor event features typical Dutch street food like, kroketten, bitterballen (bread crumbed meat-based snack roll or ball), patat friet (Dutch fries with different toppings), 'Hollandse haring' (raw herring flown in from Holland), poffertjes (Dutch mini pancakes), all kinds of home baked Dutch cookies like stroopwafels and imported prepackaged delicacies. Also find Indonesian street food (part of Dutch culinary heritage) like satay and lumpia. Once you've had a taste, you may want to explore more of Dutch cuisine at home with the recently released cookbook Indo Dutch Kitchen Secrets, the first Indo Dutch heritage cookbook in English by Jeff Keasberry - available at the fair.
For entertainment: people can listen and dance to live music by a rockband and Dutch DJ, play traditional Dutch games (for both adults and kids), flea market, photo ops with different Dutch scenery. Heineken beer garden - the national beer of Holland. As one of the visitors commented: "It's about a sense of belonging and forming friendships. For one day, everybody feels the same. Bright orange and uninhibited!" The event gains more local, out of town and even out of state visibility each year and has transformed into one of the largest annual gatherings of Dutch culture and hospitality in the USA.
