Krampusnacht at Hollerbach’s
December 5, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pmVarious prices
Announcing our First Annual Krampus Night!
For the first time this holiday season, we’ll be nervously welcoming Krampus himself to the Willow Tree on Krampusnacht December 5th – come join us for the fun! But be careful – if you’ve been bad, Krampus might stuff you in his sack and cart you off to wherever he takes the naughty Kinder…
THIS EVENT IS FOR ADULTS ONLY
Krampus costumes not required but are welcome!
According to certain traditions, der Nikolaus is sometimes accompanied by a helper to deal with the naughty children: either Knecht Ruprecht or the dreaded horned goat-demon Krampus, who wears a basket to carry bad children away!
In parts of Europe – and more recently, even here in North America – there is a tradition on Krampusnacht of young men dressing up in frightening Krampus costumes and wreaking havoc in the streets, rattling chains, ringing bells and generally causing mayhem.
