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.
Typical Dutch Food Throughout
All through the day, you can discover typical Dutch food. From 11:00 to 16:00, the Dutch snackbar Dutchlicious will take care of all the classics. Patatje Speciaal met ui, Broodje kroket, frikandel, loempia? All that and more. Dutchlicious will take care of your Dutch cravings. At noon, the Dutch Business Club and the Consul General will serve free pannekoeken to 200 people who registered in advance. Pick your fillings. And coffee with speculaas is free throughout the day, donated by Dutch Network. During the evening party, Vancouver Homemade Indonesian Food provides an authentic Indonesian buffet. This eight-course dinner includes Nasi, Bami, Sate, Gado Gado, Rendang, and a yummy Indonesian dessert. Spices for this dinner are imported directly from Indonesia.
