Note: Milwaukee Krampusnacht is glad to have special guests Raven Resistance as part of our event. Please support their clothing drive and the Milwaukee Women’s Center.
The Raven Resistance is hosting a drive for new or gently used winter coats, hats, and gloves for women and children in all sizes, and new socks and underwear for women and children to be donated to the Milwaukee Women’s Center. Over 30% of all domestic violence cases in Wisconsin occur in Milwaukee County. The Milwaukee Women’s Center is one of only two shelters in Milwaukee County specifically serving women and children who are victims of domestic abuse. Please contact Moriah Iverson at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, and thank you for giving!

PRE-ORDERING IS THE ONLY WAY TO GUARANTEE YOU WILL GET YOUR MITTS ON ONE!

Milwaukee Krampusnacht, Dec. 5, SOLD OUT
My friends, if you are reading this and you did not get a ticket to Milwaukee Krampusnacht and are disappointed by this, let me say that we are sorry. 500 tickets were gone in just over 24 hours.
This is not only our first attempt to host a Krampusnacht, but the first serious effort to hold an event like this in Milwaukee. We were not sure what to expect. When we saw the numbers of interested people swell, we knew we would have to cap attendance to respect Lakefront Brewery’s capacity and to make it a comfortable experience for everyone. We simply can’t fit 100 pounds of Krampus into a 10 pound bag, as the saying goes.
Please know that next year we are definitely looking to expand into a bigger fest that will accommodate a larger crowd, more space and more vendors in a traditional German Christmas market set up. The parade will also be bigger.
If you did get tickets, you need to print tickets or show them on a mobile device at the door, where you will also pick up your stickers or candy totes if you got those options.
If you are a vendor, performer, or parade participant (we are now closed to new participants), you do not need a ticket.
We will post parade route info within the next week. Thank you all for your support. Milwaukee has spoken and the word on the street is WE WANT KRAMPUS!
