The anniversary of the founding of Boyolali is celebrated on June 5, as the government of Kasunanan Surakarta stated a new rule about the village government or the government outside the Kuthanegara (Capital City) on June 5, 1847. The rule was adopted pursuant to the treaty of Serat Perjanjian Dalem Natha entered into between Paku Buwana VII and the Dutch Government in the belief that the incumbent government was unable to manage all the complicated government tasks. The treaty is in the treaty of Serat Perjanjian Dalem Natha page 140 – 146 or in Staatsblad 1847 No. 30. Chapter 30 – 36. According to Staatsblad in 1847 No.30, the Government of Kasunanan Surakarta formed six "Mountain Regencies" in its surrounding area to help the government in those regions. The six regions were the City of Surakarta and the Regencies of Kartosuro, Klaten, Boyolali, Ampel and Sragen. (Pawarti Surakarta, 1939:71). Based on that Staatsblad later on known as the anniversary of the Regency Boyolali was June 5, 1847.
