Each year we begin the preparations for Sinterklaas Festival Day with fun activities for all. Crowns & Branches as well as the Puppet Workshop are open to the community and free of charge; donations are welcome. Children & adults welcome. Lots of fun. Children must be accompanied by an adult. All individuals must wear a mask while attending the workshops. PAID FOR IN PART BY DUTCHESS COUNTY!
Opens on November 11, 2022
All workshops will be held in the gym at the former Bulkeley Middle School, 6 Mulberry Street in the Village of Rhinebeck. MAP
Please check here to confirm before you head on over!
On the following days from 11:00am – 4:00pm
In the spirit of inclusivity, we welcome neurodivergent children and children with other special needs to join us during this hour. The environment will offer reduced sensory input (fewer participants to keep noise volume reduced and lower volume music) and helpful supports toward the completion of the creative project.
If you are interested and willing to help run the Celebration Space please contact Joanna Hess (845-505-6397) or sign up online.
Join Sinterklaas puppeteers Alex Kahn and Sophia Michahelles for workday sessions to restore, remake, and create puppets for the Starlight Parade!
Help us make this year’s honored animals, the Porcupine! Bring color back to the Turtle! Give luster to the Peace Dove!
Workshops are geared towards adults and teens, and older children working with an adult are welcome!
11:00am – 4:00pm
Spots are limited and registration is required! To register for the puppet workshops, email email@example.com and we will be in touch.
