Martyrs’ Krampusfest

Paisley Agate Geode Earrings

Join RedAvaDesigns for the 6th annual Krampusfest on Saturday December 8, 2018, 12noon-6pm at Martyrs, 3855 N. Lincoln, Chicago. In Central European folklore, Krampus is a horned figure described as “half-goat, half-demon”, who, during the Christmas season, punishes children who have misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts.

Krampusfest Artisan Market features local artists and crafters for your holiday shopping. Enjoy housemade Gluhwein (mulled wine) and German street food. Krampus creatures and live music will be at this free and family-friendly event too!

I hope to see you this Saturday!
