Festival Details - "Sinterklaas - St. Nicholas Day & Tree Lighting"...

Come meet Sinterklaas at the Wyckoff House Museum!

The festivities will kick off at 1:00 p.m. with a traditional concert by colonial balladeer Linda Russell. Children will enjoy a special visit from St. Nicholas as he arrives on horseback around 2:30 p.m. 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.
