TELL YOUR FRIENDS
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 30th.
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 the band ‘Good Rockin’ Daddy and Dutch DJ Marc van Brabant, play traditional Dutch games (for both adults and kids), find something at the flea market or have their picture taken at the different photo booths with Dutch scenery. The party would not be complete without Heineken - the national beer of Holland. As one of the visitors commented last year: “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 an annual gathering of Dutch culture and hospitality.
Did you know?
The terms "Dutch", "the Netherlands" and "Holland" are the source of much confusion.
Dutch - adjective: of, relating to, or characteristics of the Netherlands, its inhabitants or their language. Holland is a province of The Netherlands. Holland is a common name for the entire country.
The Dutch wear orange because it’s the color of the Dutch Royal Family. The current Dutch dynasty is the House of Oranje-Nassau (of Orange).
NOTE: It is always a good idea to verify date, time, location and other information prior to going.
