Welcome to the Dutch Club Wellington
We are a club for Dutch immigrants, expats and anyone who is interested in anything Dutch. We have our own club house ‘Avalon House’ and we organise several annual events as well as weekly social activities. Every Sunday we have our Social Sunday where you are welcome to enjoy a coffee and a kroket or something a bit stronger. Twice a month we meet on a Wednesday for coffee and lunch, with kroketten, broodjes and soup in the winter. Every Tuesday our card enthusiast meet for Klaverjassen. Check the upcoming events and activities out here.

Our King Willem Alexander celebrates his birthday on the 27th of April and we don’t let this date go by unnoticed. Join us to toast on his majesty and celebrate his birthday with Dutch food, drinks and other activities.

This is our annual big event. It is when we ‘emerge’ from the clubhouse onto the wider Wellington scene. It’s an important event for our club. Not just for our members, but also for the wider Wellington Community.

We celebrate this yearly Leiden’s festival at our Clubhouse in Avalon. All are welcome to enjoy Hutspot met klapstuk (draadjesvlees), herring or rolmops and a desert. You can register for this event now but be quick as seats are limited.

Every year Sinterklaas will make a detour from his annual trip to the Netherlands and visit the young and not so young in Wellington. This event is open to anyone, members and non-members. More details will follow but for now, be sure to put the date in your diary.
