The Dutch Club of Chicago has been around since 1958. On these pages you will find information about the history of the Club, board members and an overview of activities.
The Club strives to serve the Dutch community as well as those with interests in The Netherlands. To that end, we work closely with the Consulate General of The Netherlands in Chicago, the Tul(i)p School, Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency (NFIA) as well as the Dutch-American Chamber of Commerce.
We also work closely together with the local European clubs, like the Belgians (BACC)and German (DANK) clubs, for instance by sharing events.
The Dutch Club of Chicago organizes wide variety of events. Young and old, families and singles, old-timers and new arrivals - each has a place within the organization. We're a club of volunteers - we're all well-integrated into the United States but know that it's nice to visit your roots every now and then.
As a member you will receive significant discounts for our events and will be kept up-to-Dutchicago-date via our newsletter and newsflashes on the latest social and cultural events, important (consular) news, and member announcements. Events that we organize have included Monthly Borrels, Koningsdag Feest, Dutch New Years', Sinterklaas celebration, sailing, wine tasting, ice skating, puzzelrit, golf outings, music and comedy performances.
