Krampus Night 9 - A Holiday-ish Charity Extravaganza!

Oh you better watch out…’cus we're coming back to town!  On Friday December 6th 2019, Krampus is at it again with the 9th annual festive event:


For 2019, the festivities include:

 Christmahanakwanza Variety
Show Spectacular

Come experience a wild night of amazingly bad lip syncing, barely rehearsed skits and impromptu shenanigans loosely based on your favorite holiday television and film classics!  Featuring Satori Circus, Lushes LaMoan, Loulou Roxy, Kitty PageScott Dambacher and lounge singer extraordinaire Konrad Lee!
This year's production...A CHRISTMAS CAROL?

Wreck The Halls Film Fest 

A mini film festival of festive-ish shorts from local and international filmmakers! Everything from the non-traditional to the truly bizarre, all to give you for holiday WTH feelz. 

Naughty List Bazaar 

Buy some swell affordable art gifts for the naughty on your list (or for your naughty self)!  You’ll find everything from small unique stocking stuffers to large original art pieces.   Shop and support local artists!

Bad Gingerbread House Competition

Calling all bad bakers and peeps who burn water!! Enter to compete in the 4th annual bad bake-off or just come witness (and judge) the monstrosities! Decorations can be anything…candy, frosting, toys, spraypaint, rocks, nails, whatevs. And everyone are judges!

Fugly Sweater Contest 

You may THINK you have an ugly sweater, but is it FUGLY? Hit that thrift store! Slap on some holiday crap! Glue on some disturbing things and light it up!
We want to see the worst things ever imaginable on a human body!

Not-So-Silent Art Auction

Generously donated by various artists of the DAMNED Exhibition and the Krampus Bazaar, you can bid to take home some amazing fine art while helping the homeless! 100% of all auction funds go directly to Burners Without Borders Detroit to help purchase much needed supplies to create survival backpacks for the homeless.


The Detroit Krampusnacht Parade will take over the streets outside the venue to begin the festivities and conclude with first annual Krampus Costume Contest!


Krampus Night is a Toy & Food Card Drive for needy kids and the homeless! Bring in some new toys or $5 fast food gift cards and get in on the cheap (and some good feels)! All toy donations are taken directly to a Toys For Tots center to benefit less fortunate children during the holidays and all food card donations go to Burners without Borders Detroit to help feed the homeless.
