Saint Anthony's Parish (a.k.a. the Portuguese Church)

This event is free of charge for NAF members. Non-members are very welcome to attend.

Also this year we offer a Membership Special: If you apply for a NAF family membership of $100 or more, then you do not only support the NAF Fulbright Scholarships, but it also entitles you to attend TWO Sinterklaas parties (2016 & 2017) for free. You can pay for membership below.

On the day of the Sinterklaas Party, please bring a wrapped present of around $15 for each child in your party. Each present should be labeled with your child’s first and last name. Please bring an extra shoe for each child as well. Maybe Sinterklaas will leave something in it!

If your child wants to make a picture for Sinterklaas, feel free to bring that to the party. All the pictures will be displayed so Sinterklaas and the “Pieten” can see them! If your child would like to present something to Sinterklaas like an act or singing a song, please contact

If you have registered, but will not be able to attend then we can only refund your payment if people on the wait list can take your place.

Sinterklaas is looking forward to seeing many children on December 4!
