This day is observed on June 5 in Denmark and commemorates the anniversary of the signing of the Danish constitution of 1849, which established Denmark as a constitutional monarchy, and honors the constitution of 1953, which was adopted on the same day. Almost all workplaces and shops in Denmark are closed at noon on this particular day and political rallies and meetings are traditionally held.

This day is also Father's Day in Denmark.

The Danish Sisterhood celebrate Denmark's Constitution day with a picnic yogether with many other Danes each year at the Scandinavian Centre in Burnaby and many bring their Pet Club members.

The Celebration in 2019 will be held June 02nd at the Scandinavian Centre in Burnaby.
