In This Sinterklaas Edition

It is the time of year again to start looking forward to the visit of Sinterklaas.

  • Sunday, December 4, 2016 - Annual NAF Boston Sinterklaas Party - Also this year Sinterklaas will visit the children of Boston. This event, which has sold out in past years, will again be held at the Portuguese Church in Cambridge.
We are looking for volunteers to help with the arts & crafts table, face painting and other things that contribute to the party. Also, we are seeking some more bruine en "roet"-pieten to assist Sinterklaas when he will be meeting with the children.

The Sint requests enthusiastic volunteers (15 years or older) to contact Annemarie Swager.

 If you like our events, please consider becoming a member of the NAF.

We are always looking for volunteers to help organize social, cultural and business events and help with our social media activities. Volunteering is a great way to expand your network and learn new skills. No experience required.

NAF event registration fees are non-refundable, however transfer of tickets to people who fit the same ticketing category will be permitted.

Sinterklaas Party 2016

Sunday, December 4, 2016

Saint Anthony's Parish (a.k.a. the Portuguese Church)
400 Cardinal Medeiros Ave
Cambridge, MA 02141

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!

Book now, this event sells out each year.
