A NOT-SO-HOLIDAY CHARITY BENEFIT EXTRAVAGANZA
Who is Krampus? Only the swellest devil to accompany ole’ St Nick on his rounds during the holidays. Unlike Santa, he joyfully punishes the naughty by swatting them with switches…but who doesn’t? However, on this night he’s a devil with a cause helping those in need with a…

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. And to make this a Black Friday you won’t regret, there’s also a…
Generously donated by various artists of the DAMNED Exhibition, Corpus Illuminata 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 (click here for details).
But wait! There’s also the 7th annual…
It’s a “no-so-holiday” exhibition of naughty art, animatronics, ornaments and decorations! The exhibition will be spread out all over the venue. And this year, WTH includes a bad gingerbread house competition (click the link to sign up)!

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, Bootsie La Fontaine, Scott Dambacher and lounge singer extraordinaire Konrad Lee!
And if that wasn’t enough, there’s also…
- Krampus Short Film Festival of holiday(-ish) indy films!
- Live action Fugly Holiday Sweater Contest!
- A full bar with all the boozy trimmings and spiked punch!
- Swanky holiday lounge music all night…every-freakin’-where!
- Demented decor by the Krampus Recrafting Antidecoration Party (KRAP)!
