Milwaukee Krampusnacht: Toys for Tots Drive and Raffle and White Elephant gift exchange


We are happy to support the Marine Toys for Tots Program again this year at Milwaukee Krampusnacht with a toy drive.

From their website: “The primary goal of Marine Toys for Tots is, through the gift of a new toy, help bring the joy of Christmas and send a message of hope to America’s less fortunate children.”

You’ll find donation boxes in the lobby of the Bavarian Bierhaus, right where you check in with tickets. Please bring donations of new, unwrapped gifts. Additional program information and donation links can be found on the Toys for Tots website:

In addition, we will be raffling off three gift baskets of cool, unique items from our vendors, sponsors, and friends (if you have something to contribute, e-mail Raffle tickets are $1 each and can be purchased at the lobby ticket check in area or from our roving raffle ticket seller. All money will be donated to Toys for Tots. Raffle winners will be drawn at 9pm at the Beer Hall stage.

White Elephant gift exchange

We’re glad to bring this Krampusnacht tradition back. Last year we had over a hundred people participate in our white elephant gift exchange. Here’s how it works– find a frightening fantastic gift (we say $5-$15 range, though most good gifts tend to be priceless). Wrap it up and when you arrive at the event, go into the Beer Hall. You’ll see a table near the stage, drop it off there and a volunteer will give you a ticket for a gift (proof that you dropped something off). At 9pm return to the table, hand a volunteer your ticket and pick out a gift! You never know what you might get. Be sure to snap a photo and share your gift on social media.
