A CELEBRATION OF THE XMAS DEVIL AND CONTEST FOR THE 20220 KRAMPUS KING. ENTRIES OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!

Some of the the 2019 Krampi with the winner of 2019 Krampus King (with the reindeer head)

Krampus or the “Christmas Devil” is a mythical creature, who in folklore, is the evil counterpart to Saint Nicholas. The half goat, half demon is responsible for punishing the naughty while St. Nic gives out presents to the good. A classic example of good and evil. Krampus has gained in popularity over recent times, but for us horror fans, he is the perfect monster for the holidays! Most celebrated in Central and Eastern Europe, Krampus is celebrated on December 6th with a parade called Krampusnacht (night of the Krampus). In the parade people dress up as the beast and walk the streets for all to see.

OUR KRAMPUS PARADE & CONTEST

The KRAMPUS PARADE, will be back this year and will take place right inside the market! The parade is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. We will be inviting all Krampi to join the parade and participate in the contest (immediately following the parade) with a chance to win the title of “Krampus King.”

Along with the public Krampi, we will have some spectacular beasts provided by several professional production teams who will ultimately be the judges and will crown the Krampus King. Do you have the evil skills to blow away our judges?

More info on how to sign up and participate will be announced soon. Check back here or join the FB event invite for first announcements.

RULES: While in character, Krampus can be scary and over the top with growls and general monster behavior. However, please be reminded that you MUST NOT touch anyone! It’s okay to reach for the crowd, but be careful not to actually touch or hurt anyone. For example, don’t “spank” anyone with a broom or any other type of behavior. Also, if you bring accessories like chains (a common one) please don’t hit the floor with them and cause any damage. No fire is allowed! In summary, be on your best monster behavior. The venue is not our property so we have to show our respect and we want everyone to walk away happy. Thanks monsters!
