Enjoy a family-friendly celebration of all things Saint Nicholas! Even before coming to live in this house, the Van Cortlandt family would have celebrated Saint Nicholas Day as the holiday for honoring children and giving gifts. 

Come to Van Cortlandt House Museum to learn more about the history of Saint Nicholas Day through a special eye-spy tour of the house, craft projects, games, and hot chocolate around our campfire (weather permitting). 

Mounted Parks Enforcement Patrol horses will be at the museum for a meet and greet between 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. Other activities will take place throughout the day.
