Special Events

Authentic Dutch Spring Market

If you enjoy a European market atmosphere the Spring Market is the place to be on the day before Mother’s Day each year. There are many vendors with a great variety of wares and the Dutch kitchen has delicious Dutch food for sale while you enjoy the international entertainment inside the DCC Centre and outside on the parking lot.

Every year St. Nicholas and his helpers bring a visit to the Dutch Canadian Centre. For the children there is a special Sunday afternoon with entertainment and a visit from the old bishop himself. But he does not forget the adults either. Check out our current events page(s) to find out which dates Sinterklaas will join us this year.

Heritage Festival – Dutch Pavilion
Every year, on the first long weekend in August, the Dutch Canadian Club participates in the Heritage Festival at Hawrelak Park by organizing the Dutch Pavilion. It takes a lot of volunteers to make it happen and we provide three cultural things

Food: haring, kroketten, oliebollen, patat frites and a broodje gezond.

Entertainment: musical entertainment, klompendansers with traditional Dutch folk dancing, medieval flag throwing, and Street Organ ‘t Hummeltje.

Displays and souvenir sales: wooden shoes, Dutch souvenirs, dropjes, Delft blue items and much more.
