St Marys Dutch Festival

The Rembrandt Dutch club will be holding it’s annual (?) festival from Fri 26th March -Sun 28th. The club is promising…

Entertainment, Displays and demonstrations, Dutch Supermarket, Clog Making Demo, Western Sydney Woodturners. Lots of prizes to win including a Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb for two.

The club is only modest compared to the poker machine wielding goliaths but a small contingent of Routiers went to the festival a few years ago and had a pleasant day and met some very interesting characters. The club’s most impressive feature is it’s wall sized reproduction of Rembrandt’s Night Watch (yes, yes i know that is only it’s common name). There was a very learned gentleman giving lectures on the painting, historical painting methods and the adventures the painting has had since it’s completion in 1642.

The Club is located at 87 Dunheved Circuit, St Marys. Further info on 96232569

  1. Their website is at http://www.rembrandtdutchclub.com/, I’d be more interested in being seen to associate with the Morris Car loons (Sunday) than the bootscooters (Saturday).

    • Thanks Rev. Big baking day today so didn’t have much time for extra fact checking!
