Sinterklaas 2022

We are very happy to let you know that De Esdoorn, Dutch Language and Culture School, and the Dutch Network have taken over the organization of the Sinterklaas event for 2022.

This post will be the last message on this website. You can find all the information on Eventbrite.

As this is the first time that the two organizations organize this event together, we would like to let you know that the event will be a different than the in-person events in the past. As the location in Cloverdale was not available, the event is scaled down to a maximum capacity of 130 people for the first year (compared to the 400 people capacity). The event will focus more on the children and families. 

But what remains the same is het "gezellige" Sinterklaas feest.

Volunteers needed!

A Sinterklaas event has succesfully been organized by the Sinterklaas committee in BC for many years. We would really like to continue to organize this memorable event for kids and the young at heart. To be able to do this, we need new volunteers to join our team!

Seeing all the happy faces at the event is the greatest reward for your help. If you are interested in joining our team or have any other questions, please send an e-mail to  

We hope you will join us to continue to create an unforgettable Sinterklaas experience for the kids in BC!

Thank you!

Dear all,

Thanks for the great Sinterklaas celebration! We hope you all had a great time.

Sinterklaas and his Pieten loved talking to you all and they were very happy with all the beautiful colouring pictures they received.

Since it was an online celebration, we do not have many pictures. However, some screenshots will be available in the album Photos 2021.

If you have any feedback, please let us know at This is very valuable to us!

And without volunteers there is no Sinterklaas celebration. If you would like to be part of this organization, please let us know at We hope to continue this Dutch tradition next year!

See you next year! Tot volgend jaar!
