The Dutch community in San Francisco invites you to celebrate King’s Day 2017 near the Murphy Windmill on the south end of Golden Gate Park.

King’s Day, the biggest national celebration in the Netherlands, is returning once again to San Francisco. Dutch King’s Day San Francisco will be a fun-filled day with music, food, Heineken beer and a variety of great activities.

And yes, the windmill will be turned on (weather permitting) so it’s a rare day to see one of Golden Gate Park’s windmills in action.
