Sinterklaas / Saint Nicholas / Sint Nicolaas’ eve Celebration is a traditional Dutch winter holiday celebrated in the Netherlands. To celebrate the integration between the Dutch and Non-Dutch members of the University of Twente, UniTe invites you to come and celebrate this Dutch tradition which is dear to every Dutch kid and grown-up alike on this day at the Bastille.

There will be hot beverages, traditional sinterklaas snacks, cozy environment, music and fun and games which are part of the celebration.

The dutch usually write funny poems about each other and play some games and give gifts to each other.

The Plan: Everyone is invited and entry is free. The idea is to bring a small gift of € 1-5 value and write a short poem in English/your own language and play along!

Bring along your friends and if you are already celebrating this tradition, come and celebrate with all of us and make it a big celebration at the venue!
