The Greater Chicago Dutch Language Meetup is a young and growing club in the Chicago area. We facilitate meetings of Dutch, Belgian, American, Indonesian, Dutch Caribbean, Suriname and other natives with interests in Dutch language and culture. We about monthly at restaurants, often with some of the above cuisines, pubs, private homes, parks, forest preserves, and the beach!
This club was founded in August 2009 and already can boast impressive statistics: With more than 200 members, it is at a distance the largest Netherlands and Belgium-oriented club in the Midwest. More important is the feel of community and warmth at our meetings. Members travel from all over Chicagoland and from as far as Indianapolis in the south, Milwaukee in the north and Rockford in the east attend. To accommodate our broad base, we have held meetups throughout Chicagoland, in Michigan and Wisconsin.
At our meetings, most members seize the opportunity to speak their native language or the language they are learning, yet the Greater Chicago Dutch Language Meetup Group is extremely accommodating to anyone who takes interest in anything Dutch and members will be happy to speak English with you!
Thanks to our wonderful sponsors (on the left) we do not charge for membership or per meeting. We aim to offer free, fun, and inclusive meetings for years to come. Together we can make this work. Ideas for meetups and feedback are always welcome, as are sponsorship proposals. Thank you for considering the Greater Chicago Dutch Language Meetup Group to be your home, far and near to home!
