Tickets & Accommodations

The 5th Annual Milwaukee Krampusnacht 2022 is happening Sunday, December 4, 3-9pm @ Best Place and neighboring businesses of the Historic Brewery District. It’s Milwaukee’s original Krampus themed festival.

General Admission: This ticket will get you into all aspects of the event except the individually ticketed activities (below). That includes the vendor floor, party patio, St. Nick’s Speakeasy, and stages. Our parade is at 7pm. We are keeping the advance tickets at the low price of just 5 bucks (plus service charge) so buy in advance because they increase to $10 at the door.

Your money goes to our costs for entertainment, equipment rental, supplies, etc. Kids 13 and under are free General Admission, no ticket needed:
You can also buy General Admission tickets at the following locations:
Best Place Gift Shop (917 W. Juneau Ave.)
Lion’s Tooth (2421 S. Kinnickinnic Ave.)
Riverwest Co-op (733 E. Clarke St.)
Madam Cora’s Emporium (112 E. Chestnut St., Burlington)

Nice List Donation Ticket: This ticket pays penance for protection from Krampus! Actually, we set it up for those who want to contribute a little more toward the event. We always have a lot of expenses so if we can get some generous attendees to pay a $20 instead of a $5, we’ll meet those goals a lot faster and pay for even more great additions.

Kid’s Krampus Hour (in Best Place’s Blue Ribbon Hall, 3:30-4:30pm): A Milwaukee Krampusnacht favorite, this workshop for kids gives them a chance to unleash their inner beast by making a Krampus mask! There’s also coloring sheets, and special guest appearances, including Saint Nick and Krampus who give each kid a treat bag. It concludes with a short KinderKrampus Parade! This ticket is $15 and good for one adult Genral Admission ticket and a seat for your kid at the craft tables (kids get free general admission). Space is limited! Additional adults need to get their own General Admission ticket:
