Explore New York City’s oldest house and experience the Dutch tradition of Sinterklaas which evolved into the American tradition of Santa Claus, with colonial music, treats, stories, and crafts.
The festivities will kick off at 1pm with a traditional concert by colonial balladeer Linda Russell. Children will enjoy a special visit from St. Nicholas as he arrives on horseback around 2:30pm. In the Dutch tradition, visitors can feed St. Nicholas’s faithful horse carrots and hay. Children are invited to sign the Red Book with St. Nicholas before he tells the traditional tale of The Bakers Dozen.
Visitors can sip hot cider, try their hand at colonial games, create a holiday pomander, decorate a Dutch clog for Sinterklaas, and dress the tree for the tree lighting that will close the day as the sun goes down.
