A visit to Nelis' Dutch Village is like a step back into the Netherlands of over 100 years ago on a day when a festival came to town. Demonstrations and performances; tastes, sight and sounds; and something to interest all ages. Unique shopping too.

I have gone to Dutch Village several times over the years. It is always great to see the improvements they have finished. A very nice way to spend the day. Lots of fun for the Children also.

I took my daughters to Dutch Village and we had a wonderful time. The girls especially loved walking the goats. I loved the Dutch food and the fact that the girls were able to make a Dutch cookie.

We had a wonderful time and our six year-old loved the rides and attractions. We spent the day touring around the park, participating in the demonstrations and filling up on cheese and yummy fudge. The perfect way to spend an afternoon!

This place is so much fun. We always have a great time. My daughter could spend all day here if I would let her. Only complaint would be young workers who don't care. While on the swings the worker was encouraging kids to unbuckle and get off while the rod was still moving. The Dutch dancers seemed irritated that they... More
