Dutch Network Greater Vancouver

Welkom / Welcome to the website of the Dutch Network!

We are a non-profit Dutch-Canadian Cultural Society based in Greater Vancouver, British Columbia.
We are a lively organization with weekly events for young and old. We are always looking for new activities and initiatives.

Events are organized for Dutch-Canadians so that they can get together to celebrate, enhance and preserve the Dutch heritage, Dutch language and Dutch cultural traditions in BC, such as: monthly pub nights and coffee clubs, annual events which include King’s Day, Sinterklaas and the Easter Egg Hunt. Find an overview of our events below. We look forward to seeing you at our events!

Koningsdag is the most popular event of the year in our community and tickets are on sale, starting today! Last year we were sold out within days, before the Early Bird ended. Make sure you get your tickets as soon as possible. Op = Op!

Koningsdag will take place on Saturday, April 27th at 17:00 in De Dutch restaurant in Coal Harbour, Vancouver. The venue is conveniently accessible by SkyTrain, Bus and Seabus. Tickets are $17.50 for members of Dutch Network and $35 for non-members. Just like previous years, members receive a 50% discount for this event.

Your tickets includes free food (Including tons of bitterballen), one free drink ($5 value), a book, a $5 gift certificate to De Dutch, entertainment, Dutch music and all the gezelligheid you can get being with all your fellow Dutchies. Consul-General Mr. Henk Snoeken will be our special guest and Jerome Vermeulen will lead us into Oh Canada and our Wilhelmus.
