Amsterdam King’s Day 2021: All-Day Citywide Street Party

On King’s Day Amsterdam puts on the world’s largest street party. This year, however, the party moved indoors. King’s Day 2020, the Coronavirus Lockdown Edition, came and went. Here’s to hoping that everything will be back to normal in time for next year’s celebration.

Previously known as Queen’s Day, 2021 will mark the eight King’s Day in honor of King Willem-Alexander.

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