Welcome to Koningsdag 2023

Koningsdag 2023 in BC will take place on April 15, 2023, at St. Patrick’s Elementary School at 2850 Quebec Street, Vancouver. Last year was a major success, and we continue to build on that. It will be a day filled with Orange fun! The day will start at 12:00 with free pannenkoeken for 200 people. The pannenkoeken are provided by the Dutch Business Club and the consul and deputy consul will be handing them out. If you and your family want a pannekoek, make sure you register for the event! Our Dutch school De Esdoorn has an entire afternoon program for 100 children. Koningspelen, face painting, and arts & crafts are part of this wonderful event. Register your children as soon as possible, as only 100 children can participate. The Dutch Cultural Association of BC will provide sjoelbakken for hours of fun.
