On Sunday 26th April, 2015 it’s the 11th annual KLM Dutch Orange Day in Melbourne. Whether you are Dutch or not, join the Dutch community in celebrating their national holiday, King’s Day (“Koningsdag”).
The theme this year is “Taste of Holland”. The festival will showcase a wide range of Dutch culinary delights. Dutch street food on offer includes the well-known Dutch pancakes (“poffertjes”), seafood (herring, mussels and fish nuggets), traditional mash-pot dishes, pea soup, beef croquettes, cheese toasties, sweet treats and imported grocery products!
Other highlights include:
– Our online charity auction for a KLM ticket to Amsterdam, through our new website.
– A vibrant beer garden, in partnership with Bavaria Beer.
– Plenty of activities for kids, such as games, performances, face painting and an old fashioned free market (“vrijmarkt”).
