Sinterklaas Celebration Space: Crowns & Branches Plus Puppet Workshops

Open to the community

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. Children & adults welcome. Lots of fun. Please remember that children must be accompanied by an adult.

 

CROWNS & BRANCHES AND THE GIANT PUPPET WORKSHOPS

Opens on November 16, 2019
Thanks to the generosity of the Rhinebeck Methodist Church this season Sinterklaas will once again offer a place for the community to come together to make Crowns & Branches for the parade.
PLUS
Work with artists-in-residence to create GIANT PUPPETS for the Parade! Led by Master Puppeteers Alex Kahn and Sophia Michahelles.
