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.
Start the day off at 1PM with a concert by colonial balladeer Linda Russell. Enjoy a special visit from St. Nicholas as he arrives on horseback at 2:30pm. Grab a carrot and feed St. Nicholas’s faithful horse before signing the Red Book of who’s been naughty and who’s been nice. Sip cider as Sinterklaas tells the tale of The Bakers Dozen. Take your photo with Old St. Nick.
Games, food and crafts will continue throughout the day: Try your hand at colonial games, nosh on holiday food to warm your soul, create a holiday pomander, or decorate a Dutch clog for Sinterklaas before the tree decorating and lighting as the sun goes down.
