Where did the name Klompen Stampers Come From?

As I explained in the video, Klompen Stampers comes from Klompen Dancers. In Holland, Michigan, every year there is a big Tulip Time Festival. During this time, there are hundreds of Klompen Dancers and they are so fun to watch. Here is a video I found online showing the Klompen Stampers, if you’d like to see what it is all about.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you were inspired and enjoyed the project. If you have any questions about today’s post or project, make sure to leave me a comment. I’d love to hear from you.

  1. Love your stamp ideas and videos, but want to comment on klopmen dancers! When I was a little girl, my mom was a klompen stomper/dancer in the Touch of Dutch parade in Demotte, Indiana. I also had wooden shoes and a Dutch dress too when I was little. I remember they would clean the street with brooms before they danced. Precious memories! My parents lived in Demotte their entire lives. There is still a Touch of Dutch parade there, but I don’t know of they still have Klompen dancers. I live in Illinois now. Hope to get back to thenTouch of Dutch parade/festival again sometime and to Holland, MI for Tulip Time! I’ve never been to Tulip Time… not even when I was at Calvin for four years (1986 to 1990)!

    • What lovely memories! I hope you can get back for the Tulip parade someday; truly something special! Have a stamp happy day!

  2. Very interesting, I loved watching the Klompen Stampers. However I believe the name Bolhuis is Dutch, where does Dave’s name originate? My grandparents were from Friesland.

  3. This year, for the first time, my best friend and I went to Holland during the tulip festival. Oh my. What a feast for the eyes! Gorgeous, gorgeous tulips. It was hard to find a favorite. I love your your enthusiasm and your creativity. You inspure me, for simple but wowing cards are my favorites. Being a demonstrator, but not doing the business, I often watch your videos to get ideas for card making as we have a ‘card ministry’. Blessings! Hope you were able to enjoy some tulips!

    • I’m so glad that you were able to see those gorgeous tulips! Thanks for watching and commenting on the cards too!

  4. With a name like Vanderploeg, I loved your Klompen explanation! I’ve enjoyed Tulip Fests at Pella and Orange City, IA but I’ve never seen the one in Michigan. I’ve been to Holland, MI, though and loved the Dutch heritage.
    Your Dutch Friend,
    Karen Vanderploeg

    • I’m so glad you’ve been able to see some tulip festivals. Yes, Holland, MI is a fun place. Thanks for watching!
