Sinterklaas Eve | Friday, Dec 6 2019

6:00pm – 9:00pm

Join us for an evening of Dutch holiday traditions as we celebrate Sinterklaas Eve. The festivities begin at 6:00 pm with Dutch lantern making, crafts and storytelling at the Holland Area Arts Council (150 E 8th Street). Dutch lanterns are available to the first 300 children beginning at 6:00 pm while supplies last. 

Just after 7:00 pm, families head outside with their lanterns to join Sinterklaas on his white horse, leading the procession down 8th Street to the Kerstmarkt, an open-air holiday market. 

Activities at the Kerstmarkt include a special welkom, photo opportunities and holiday shopping.  A large portion of this event is outdoors, so please dress warm and bring your holiday cheer!

A 501(c)3 non-profit, Tulip Time works hard to keep this long-standing Holland tradition in our community.  A small donation of $3 per child is requested, but not required.  There are opportunities to purchase treats, warm beverages and holiday items at the Kerstmarkt.
