Krampus works one night a year and has one job…to punish the naughty
Although if you have been getting yourself into trouble during the year it may be a bit risky coming to a Krampus gathering, but we still encourage it. In fact, we strongly encourage all attendees to celebrate along with us and get into the spirit by donning themed costumes. Get creative, we want to see how you interpret this Alpine tradition New Orleans style.
Think…a touch of alpine winter, snow, and cold.
The more creative you are with your costume might just be what’s needed to capture the attention of mean ol’ Krampus. Will you get the switch or will you get a coveted piece of coal? Are you brave enough to find out?
In keeping with New Orleans traditions the Krewe of Krampus will have traditional throws along with several of our own. Including our signature throw, which will be handed to a select few and is an officially decorated lump of coal! It will be Krampus meets Mardi Gras
Be Part of the Festivities
In a city where the bar is high when it comes to events and parades, we have our work cut out for us. Lucky for all of us we live in a city that is always open to new ideas. With your help we can celebrate an age-old tradition in a way only fitting for the great city of New Orleans.
