Orange is coming back
Join Dutch friends in Prague in celebrating Kingsday on April 21st
Prague Unlimited, Holland in Prague and PragueTV invite you to join its Dutch friends in celebrating Kingsday on April 21st as the city will turn orange.
Various countries have special days that are enjoyed around the world, most recently St. Patrick’s Day, but you can be forgiven for not knowing the Netherland’s special day. Kingsday, formerly Queensday, is the day where the whole Dutch nation celebrates the birthday of the king. The residents line the streets in their droves, singing, dancing and all donning the national colour of orange. It is a day that is celebrated in many parts of the world and now it is returning to Prague in style and is sure to be a great experience for all who take part.
This is the fifth celebration of Kingsday in Prague with the latest choice of venue looking to be an improvement on all the previous occasions. Zizkov TV Tower is a unique location and the new site of this year festivities. Zizkov TV Tower is only a few minutes’ walk from Jiriho z Podebrad (JZP), with nearby tram and metro links, as well as playing host to stunning skyline views of Prague. For more information on the TV Tower, check out the website here.
At this year’s event there is a full programme of entertainment running through into the early hours of the morning. To bring some more authenticity to the celebrations some special artists are flying in from the Netherlands to make this an unforgettable party. Accomplished Dutch artist Patrick Bakker will be creating the biggest Dutch “sing a-long” while famous Dutch musician DJ Willem will keep everyone on their toes with his electronic music style. Furthermore, the party will receive a typical Dutch send-off with EDM expert DJ Dazzle closing the evening the only way the Dutch know how.
As you would expect, the dress code requires you wear the national colours of the Netherlands, this means red, white, blue and, of course, orange. All are welcome to the party, so feel free to bring family, friends and or colleagues. This year’s event will begin at 8pm, with the doors being opened by a representative of the Dutch Embassy so it is encouraged to attend for 8pm, while expect to be leaving between 2-2.30am.
Tickets for the Kingsday party can be purchased online for 300czk at GoOut (until Friday 21.4 at 6pm) or if you wish to purchase on the door then tickets will be priced at 400czk. Your ticket will include a welcome drink, numerous freebies and of course, plenty of fun. There will also be prizes for the best dressed guests. Those looking the best will win a weekend for two at a special location and three digital satellite receivers including three months subscription, courtesy of the event’s sponsor Expat Sat. These satellite receivers have hundreds of channels from multiple countries, including Dutch TV, of course.
