    A few weeks from now the Netherlands will be celebrating 'Koningsdag' (King's Birthday)!

    His Royal Highness King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima will be visiting the cities of Amstelveen and De Rijp for this festivity.

    While a visit to Tucson is not anticipated this year, we will certainly be joining the Dutch people in this wonderful celebration!

    2014 King's Day in Tucson, AZ

    You and your family and friends are cordially invited to join the 2014 King's Day party on

    Saturday April 26, from 5 - 8 PM

    The celebration will take place at the beautiful home of Carlou and Scott Stubbs, who live just a few minutes west from La Encantada (Armitage). See address and map to the left.

    To keep things simple, this will be a potluck-style of event, free of charge. Just bring something to eat (finger food-style) like a Borrelhap, hefty Hors d'oeuvre or something sweet.

    Please also bring your favorite alcoholic drink (beer, wine etc). Soft drinks, water, iced tea etc will be available, so no need to bring those.


    Please click on the REGISTER NOW link below to register so we know how many guests to expect and what food you will bring.

    For planning purposes, please register no later than April 15!

    Any questions? Please contact Carlou at or call 520-299-7792.

    NOTE: This is a party for grownups only. The property has an unfenced and unsupervised pool, so for safety reasons small children should not attend.

    Please also note that there will be no NLBorrel on Friday April 25, 2014

    The first King's Day in Tucson was a huge success!

    Around 50 people defied the initial wind and rain and by the time they got to the party it had cleared up and we were able to celebrate under sunny skies!

    First of all: a big THANK YOU to Carlou and Scott Stubbs who hosted the 2014 King's Day event! What a wonderful home and how pretty they had decorated everything!

    They worked tirelessly to create a perfect King's Day venue and made major contributions to this fantastic and fun event. Many thanks Carlou and Scott!!

    Around 5 PM the guests arrived at the party, bringing absolutely delicious food and drinks which made for a wonderful (and large!) buffet that people enjoyed throughout the evening.

    There was much laughter and animated conversation on the patios while people enjoyed the beautiful views over Tucson from the Catalina's.

    An official toast to King Willem-Alexander emphasized the reason why we all got together on this festive day!

    The party continued for many hours and as it got a little cooler we gathered around the large fire pit that kept us warm and comfortable.


    Arjen took the pictures (thanks Arjen!) and if you click HERE you will be taken to the King's Day photo album.

    Thanks to all of you for your contributions to this wonderful event! This could not have been more fun!

    Lang Leve de Koning!
