'Tis the season to celebrate! One cold night very soon, in the wee hours of the morning, children will be visited by magical beings... but not Santa this time... It's Krampus time!
Join San Francisco Krampus and the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence as they pay homage to the sinister and scary side of Christmas at their 4th Annual Krampus Pageant. On December 3rd, from 3pm to 7pm, come to the El Rio to watch a pageant where the naughty creatures of San Francisco will join a panel of steely judges and compete for a chance to be crown the Krampus of 2022.
The 4th Annual Krampus Pageant winner will receive a special effects makeup gift package from Kryolan Cosmetics and an array of prizes to help numb them through the holidays... if you know what we mean! The pageant will also feature some very special (and spooky) drag performances and live music!
We are currently accepting contestants! Do you think you have what it takes to be the new Krampus of 2022? If you'd like to participate, please e-mail [email protected]
The competition will be on the outdoor patio, and proof of vaccination is required to enter the venue.
