King’s Day 2019, Amsterdam: All-Day Citywide Street Party

Now is the time to plan your trip to Amsterdam for King’s Day — the world’s largest street party. It’s only four months away, and if you wait too long hotels will be booked solid.

Previously known as Queen’s Day, 2019 will mark the sixth King’s Day, in honor of King Willem-Alexander.

It’s actually a nationwide party, but Amsterdam definitely is the place to be.

The date: Saturday, April 27, 2019.

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other world leaders promote Amsterdam’s Queen’s Day Celebrations

That’s the new poster campaign with which Amsterdam Partners, charged with promoting the Capital of the Netherlands, hopes to inspire more foreigners to visit the city for this year’s Queen’s Day celebration (a.k.a World’s Best Party).
