The date commemorates the opening of Turkish National Assembly in 1920 during the Turkish Independence War. The designation of Children’s Day came in 1929 upon the recommendation of the Institution of Children’s Protection. Since 1986 the Turkish government organizes an international children’s festival on April 23.
On April 23 of every year, children in Turkey celebrate this “Sovereignty and Children’s Day” as a national holiday, and is celebrated by citizens throughout the country during ceremonies preceding the day.
