Since the end of the 18th century, it has been customary in Luxembourg to celebrate the ruler's birthday. In 1961, it was decided to set "Groussherzogsgebuertsdag" on June 23. This date has been maintained even if the reigning grand duke's birthday falls on another date.
The festivities in the capital begin the day before, on June 22, with the country's largest folk festival, with the traditional "Fakelzuch" and fireworks, and continue well into the night with concerts and parties for all tastes in all corners of the city, on the terraces of cafes and on stages set up especially for the occasion. The day itself is reserved for official events and ceremonies, such as the military parade and the Te Deum, as well as a large children's festival.
