Friday, December 7, 2018 - 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

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. Dutch lanterns are available to the first 300 children beginning at 6:00 pm until 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-Holland at the Holland Civic Center. Activities at the Kerstmarkt include a special welkom, photo opportunities, holiday shopping and MAX Transit trolley rides! A large portion of this event is outdoors, so please dress warm and bring your holiday cheer!

The event is free to attend and participate in, with opportunities to purchase treats, warm beverages and holiday items at the Kerstmarkt.

We are collecting bag lunch items for Kids’ Food Basket at the Holland Area Arts Council from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm. Please consider bringing a donation. Click here for a list of suggested items:
