November Event

Invitation for November event – Sinterklaas party – Saturday, November 24

International Cafe @ Facebook

Dear international students,

A very special Dutch event is the annual visit of Sinterklaas to the Netherlands. Like Santa Claus in America, he comes to bring gifts and goodies to all the well-behaved children.

On Saturday November 24 Sinterklaas will come in person to International Café, so be sure to come and meet him!

For this event we ask you to bring a small gift, suitable for any gender, and costing no more than 3 euros. It can also be something you have made yourself, like a cake or a drawing. Wrap it nicely, and in such a way that no one can guess what is inside. Each person will go home with a gift after we play a crazy game to see who gets what. We will be serving nice, thick wintery soups (pumpkin soup, Dutch ‘erwtensoep’, Indonesian peanut soup) a pasta salad and warm garlic bread. We will have vegetarian food for those who don’t eat meat.


The location of this meeting of International Café will be Het Pand, Madoerastraat 16 in Groningen. We will have a banner at the entrance to the alley leading to Het Pand. Check our website for some photos of the neighbourhood and directions on how to get there.


18.00 to 22.00 — Come on time. Coffee and tea are served at 18.00 and dinner at 18.30. Enjoy the food while it is hot!

Cost for the meal (in addition to your Sinterklaas gift)

€3.00 — Be sure to bring cash, preferably change.
