We are very excited that Sinterklaas will visit us again in Chicago this year! The 'Goedheiligman' will pay us a visit on Sunday, December 7th, on his trip home from the Netherlands!
The doors will open at 12.00 PM to sign in. We will have an arts & crafts area for the children were they can decorate their own goodie bag for the pepernoten and make a small craft.
During the intermission we'll have (soft)drinks, poffertjes and we'll offer some light snacks for all.
Booking tickets - NEW - Please read!
Members of the Dutch Club of Chicago and Parents of Students at the Tul(i)p School enjoy discounted ticket prices. Regular ticket prices are $20 for adults, but after discount for being a Dutch Club Member or Tulip School Parent only $10!
Due to the size of this event this year, we'll need to know how many Children will be accompanying the adults this year, so please order (free) tickets for the children as well. Members of the Dutch Club will will receive an invitation with a link for the discounted ticket prices, Parents of the Tulip School Studenst will receive a discount code from the school.
We ask all parents to bring a wrapped gift along for your child(ren). We suggest you wrap the gift(s) in red wrapping paper or Sinterklaas paper, if you have any. Make sure their first and last names are written clearly on each gift, so Sinterklaas will not make a mistake! We ask that your gift(s) does not exceed $10, as Sinterklaas loves all children equally.
The gifts will be collected outside of the gymnasium before we start. Please follow the signs.
Let's make this event extra special for Sinterklaas. Can you please practice the following songs with your children?
The reservation deadline is Friday, December 5th, 2014.
