Sinterklaas 2021

We are so excited to let you know that Sinterklaas will come to Vancouver again. 
As many of you know, Sinterklaas is quite old and with the current pandemic, we decided it is better to meet the children online. It will be different, but fun nonetheless!

We will have a fun 30-40 minutes with singing songs to Sinterklaas and dancing Pieten dances on Saturday, November 27, 2021.

Around that day, there will also be a chance to see Sinterklaas and Pieten in a private Zoom-room.

More information to follow in November, but mark your calendar for now!

Sinterklaas 2020

 It is with sadness in our hearts, that we are announcing that the Sinterklaas committee is unable to welcome Sinterklaas this year. The main reason for this decision is that there aren't enough new committee members to organize this event.

We advertised our requirement for new committee members with the Dutch Network, on Facebook, at the event and our website. A Sinterklaas event has been organized by the Committee for 8 years. It has been a memorable event for kids and the young at heart. However, it is time for new committee members to join the team.

The existing board will meet again next year to see how many new volunteers have come forward and determine what we will do in 2021.  If not enough volunteers step up, we will not be able to organize another event. If you are interested in joining our team, please send an Email to Please tell us any previous volunteering experience, and why you are interested in joining the Sinterklaas team.

In lieu of our Sinterklaas celebration, the Dutch Network will be organizing an online event. For more information please go to the Dutch Network website

The Dutch school De Esdoorn will organize a Sinterklaas event as well for the families and friends of all students. For more information please visit their website
