Enjoy a family-friendly celebration of Saint Nicholas with the Van Cortlandt family. 

Long before Saint Nicholas became associated with Christmas, his feast day was a holiday for giving presents and honoring children. Come to Van Cortlandt House Museum to learn more about the history of Saint Nicholas through a special eye-spy tour of the house, stories, craft projects, games, and hot chocolate around our campfire (weather permitting). 

Activities and tours will take place throughout the day from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
