Milwaukee Krampusnacht planning is moving along. This has been a challenging year to plan anything, but as always, we are working hard to bring great entertainment, vendors, and performers to our event. Join us 4-10pm Sunday, Dec. 5 at the Bavarian Bierhaus (700 W. Lexington Blvd., Glendale).
Tickets are on sale now– general admission tickets are just $5. Children 12 and under are free (if they’ve been good, otherwise we’re charging them double!) We have always strived to make this an affordable event for anyone who wants to go. We do not have our Kid’s Krampus Hour tickets available yet, still trying to figure out some logistics. We’re hoping to have the Kid’s Krampus Hour tickets available Nov. 5– these will be limited to 50 and includes a special craft-making session, candy bag, and special visit by Saint Nick and Krampus.
General admission tickets available here:
The American Ghost Walks Krampus Parade is at 7pm. If you’re interested in being in the parade as a performer, here is the registration form: milwaukeeparacon.com/2021/11/05/american-ghost-walks-krampus-parade-registration-form.
Some of the participants in this year’s parade include Milwaukee Krampus Eigenheit, Spielmannszug Milwaukee, and the Krampusnacht Dancing Hexen.
This year Milwaukee Krampusnacht is dedicated to Scott Wolter. Scott was an important part of this event– he participated every year and taught children about the Krampus tradition at our Kid’s Krampus Hour in 2018 and 19. He passed away last year and will be missed.
We’ve booked most of our entertainment, but expect a couple more acts to be announced in the next couple weeks.
We’re thrilled to welcome The Quilz, a dreamy and cinematic synthwave duo to Krampusnacht! (9pm)
Bringing back jazz and pop from the teens, 20s, and 30s, Sweet sheiks returns for their third Krampusnacht! (6pm)
Weird Wisconsin rock anthems, Madison’s Sunspot returns for their second Krampusnacht! (8pm)
A Scottish Folk band focused on creating energetic arrangements of historical (and modern) bagpipe, fiddle, and harp repertoire alongside traditional songs and ballads. (5pm)

The American Science & Surplus Krampus Holiday Market is the perfect place to get gifts for all the lovable weirdos in your life, whether they’re naughty or nice. We strived for a nice mix of vendors who have been on the floor before as well as some new faces.
