November 26: Kick Off the Holidays with Krampus Show at Výstaviště
The Christmas season in Czechia is generally seen as a happy event, but it has a darker side. While St. Nicholas rewards good children, in much of Central Europe a horned demon named Krampus comes for the bad apples.
He beats them and drags them off in a sack to only he knows where. Every year, Krampus becomes more popular. People who want to kick off the holiday season with a glimpse of him can go to Výstaviště’s Malá Sportovní Hala on Saturday, November 26, for two large Krampus shows.
Over 130 Krampuses from Austrian and Czech cosplay groups will make the blood of even the most hardened visitors freeze. Masked figures with giant horns will clank heavy chains while wearing shaggy fur coats and cow bells – the traditional garb of the demon.
Fire, sulfur, heavy chains, stinky fur coats, giant horns, cowbells, and other hellish masks of the devil’s servants will provide a terrifying spectacle.
The Krampus Family Show is from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm.
- 3:30 pm: open door
- 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm: parade and show
The early show is suitable for families with children aged 3 to 10 years old. Children who do not have their own masks can turn into little devils in the hands of experienced painters.
Krampus Night Show from 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm.
- 7:30 pm open door
- 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm: parade and show
The event is intended for adults and children aged 15 and older. Organizers really do not recommend it for anyone younger, even within the well-intentioned education of naughty children.
Just like in the afternoon show, you can prepare at home for the evening and make your own original masks that will shine on the 800-meter route parade. The evening will be accompanied by a DJ.
The refreshment zone will be open until the end of the event, during which, it will be possible to purchase glowing devilish horns and other accessories.
