This year it promises to be another cozy edition. The start is on the Stadhuisplein at 18:30 with merry Christmas music and a warm-up. The starting gun will sound at 19:00 after which hundreds of Santa Clauses will run the course of almost 3 kilometers.

Participation is suitable for everyone and costs €7.50 per person. This includes a Santa suit and musical entertainment. By participating you support this year's charity: Stardo and Polar Bears; making rowing and ice hockey possible for athletes with disabilities!

Enjoyment during Dordt December Days

It will be enjoyable during the Dordt December Days, from December 15 to 31 in the historic center! Not only by the atmospheric (shopping) streets with beautiful lighting, but also by all kinds of winter activities during the Dordtse Decemberdagen. The inner city is the place to be this festive month. Besides the traditional Sing-a-long on Friday, December 15 and Saturday, December 16 at 8 p.m. , there are some new items on the December agenda this year. Near the area between the Grote Kerk and City Hall, there will be an intimate December Market on December 16 and 17. It will be an intimate, cozy market with Christmas houses and some food trucks with all kinds of goodies. The garden of the Grote Kerk will also be cozy.

It is really worth to come several times, no evening is the same during the Dordtse Decemberdagen!
