    Op zondag 28 april 2013 wordt Koninginnedag georganiseerd voor de Nederlandse gemeenschap in Zuid Californië!

    Celebrate Queens Day in LA! Queens Day is the Dutch most beloved holiday! The Dutchies celebrate the Dutch monarchy every year with a super big party including lots of good music, Dutch beer, Dutch food and a gigantic flea market all around the country.

    The Consulate of the Netherlands in Los Angeles and the United Netherlands Organizations (UNO) of SoCal, together with the local Dutch community, will bring you a great celebration of Dutch Queen's Day in Southern California!

    The official Queens Day in the Netherlands is on Tuesday April 30. Yup, that’s a weekday, and therefore we celebrate Queens Day on April 28 in LA!

    >> What to expect?
    Celebrate Queens Day in a Dutch village that is a showcase of Dutch tradition, including:
    * Dutch foods like cheese and a whole range of other delicacies
    * Dutch beer
    * tulips, and more flowers
    * a flea market / vrijmarkt
    * kids games
    * exhibitions
    * arts and crafts
    * performances & dances
    * live music by Dutch talent
    * and much more.

    All people of Southern California are invited to join in this memorable family-friendly celebration. The 2012 event was attended by more than 3000 people, who came from Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Phoenix and more.

    >> What is Queens Day?!
    On Queens Day The Dutch celebrate the birthday of her Majesty Queen Beatrix. The monarchy was established in 1815, and King William I was its first ruler. Queen Beatrix has been the reigning monarch of the Kingdom of the Netherlands for over 30 years, succeeding her mother Queen Juliana. It's going to be a very special day this year, as Queen Beatrix will abdicate her throne to make way for her son Prince Willem-Alexander on April 30.

    For more details:


    Dank bij voorbaat. De Nederlandse Gemeenschap van Zuid Californië kijkt er naar uit om er met elkaar een heel vrolijk en gezellig oranjefeest van te maken.

    When: Sunday April 28, 2013, 12.00PM to 6.00PM
    Where: Home Depot Center, 18400 Avalon Blvd, Carson, CA
