Program King's Day 2016


Wednesday, April 26
& Thursday, April 27


King's Day is the celebration of the birthday of the Dutch king Willem-Alexander. Especially in Amsterdam this is a very popular event, which attracts hundreds of thousands to the city centre. The distinctive color of this day is Orange, as that is also the family name of the royal family.

In Regulierdwarsstraat, King's Day is traditionally celebrated with a Gay Street Party and a Dutch Street Party, both on King's Day and on the King's Night on the evening before:

The Dutch street party organized by Jantjes Verjaardag in the eastern part of Reguliersdwarsstraat attracts a mainly straight audience.

In the western part of the street, there's traditionally a large crowd of gay people, but this street party also attracts an increasing number of straight people.
