Please mark your calendars for the 66th Annual Holland Festival on Saturday, May 4th. Redlands Christian began in 1921 when a group of Dutch immigrants had the desire to have a distinctly Christian school for their children. The Holland Festival was created to celebrate the school’s Dutch heritage and is a day of fun, food, and community. The day includes class music performances, Dutch dancing, great treats from our Dutch kitchen, live and silent auctions, games booths, and so much more! All proceeds from the event support the school’s need-based tuition assistance program, which supports nearly 50% of RCS families.
