We’re so glad to have talented artist Estephanie Mendoza on this year’s vendor floor. Este created our awesome Milwaukee Paranormal Conference art for 2021 and she’s got a beautiful selection of illustrations and crafts for Milwaukee Krampusnacht. The Krampus stuff is great, of course, but we love the fact that she created some Mari Lwyd art as well (the Mari Lwyd comes from a Welsh tradition and we’ve featured one in our Krampus Parade since 2018).
Stinky Goblin Emporium has been part of Milwaukee Krampusnacht since year one and they have created our incredibly awesome event/t-shirt art every year. They say they love Krampusnacht, and we certainely love them. From the Goblins’ mouth:
“Stinky Goblin Emporium loves Krampusnacht! This year we will be selling original paintings on homemade wood plaques, hand painted wooden ornaments, and some small water color paintings, most of which center around our favorite christmas demon!”
We’re glad to welcome a new vendor to Milwaukee Krampusnacht– The Hodag Store, all the way from Rhinelander, Wisconsin. The Hodag is another horned monster that calls Wisconsin home– the legend dates back to the late 1800s when a prankster named Eugene Shepard claimed he had photographed the monster in the woods outside Rhinelander. The Hodag has since becaome a Wisconsin Legend.
The Hodag Store (538 Lincoln St., Rhinelander) is your one stop Hodag souvenir shop with over 250 items– t-shirts, stickers, games, soda, hats, pins, earrings, and much more. They’ll have a selection of merch on the Krampus Holiday Market floor and you might even see a Hodag or two in the Krampus Parade!
MILWAUKEE KRAMPUSNACHT is happening December 5 at the Bavarian Bierhaus. Tickets will be live on Halloween! As always, one of our attractions is the Krampus Holiday Market where you can find gifts for all the spooky ooky people in your life. We’ll have a range of visual art, clothing, jewelry, candles, ornaments, books, Milwaukee Krampusnacht merch and much more. Note to vendors– we’ve had many inquiries about the vendor floor, and it’s great to see so much talent out there. We are already full up this year, but hoping to expand the vendor floor next year. Drop us a line at: email@example.com and we can put you on the contact list.

One thing that separates Milwaukee Paranormal Conference from some of your other run-of-the-mill, dusty conferences is that we’ve strived since year one to make it an event of not just paranormal themed talks, but also a celebration of local arts, crafts, authors, and musicians.
This year we have an excellent line-up of 33 vendors for our event Sept. 25 at Alverno College’s Bucyrus Center. It’s a really good mix of familiar faces and people brand new to the conference, including organizations, artists, authors, businesses and more. The conference runs 10am-5pm on September 25. It’s a free event, you just need to get your tickets by registering here: milwaukeeparacon.com/registration

Kelly Goetzke is an artist who is very comfortable with her dark side and the evidence is in her talent. She takes the porcelain dolls that most little girls desire and molds them to mirror their very own nightmares. Although some may not be suitable for art lovers of all ages, it cannot be denied that all of her creations hold a dark beauty. Each doll is made one of a kind and should only go to homes of macabre lovers and horror appreciators. Do you dare?
