Adelaide’s own Dutch Festival – Bigger and Better in 2017 !
Running since 1994 Adelaide’s largest Dutch Festival is on again after 2016 saw more than 3,000 Aussies walk through the doors of the club rooms, The Dutch Club SA with generous support of Multicultural SA is proud to announce the now annual festival to be hosted on Sunday April 30th 2017!
It is well known that the Dutch are some of the most enthusiastic festival goers in the world, so it only makes sense that on their monarch’s birthday that the Dutch let their hair down with a bit of festival cheer! ‘Koningsdag’ or King’s Day for the English speakers is the largest festival in the Netherlands, celebrating King Willem-Alexander 49th birthday. Traditionally held on the 27th of April the festival in Holland is known as an ‘anything goes’ event with royal taxes not applying on the day and citizens lining the streets with massive flea markets known as ‘vrijmarkt’.
Back in Australia, The Dutch Club SA continue the festive vibe bringing the biggest market we can fit into our club grounds, we also packed the festival with entertainment, arts and crafts, traditional Dutch meals, Dutch games, live music, kids entertainment, face painting, Dutch beers/ spirits and a whole bunch more!
With orange the national colour of the royal family we don our royal colours with pride, covering ourselves from head to toe in the bright colour!
So throw on some orange, grab a bottle of Oranje bitter and a kroket or 10 and come spend a day with the Dutch.
When: 10AM until 5PM Sunday 30th of April 2017
