Are you prepared for Krampus*?
Krampusnacht is only two nights away...can you evade his talons? Can you safeguard the young ones? Can you sing ballads or poems or design a manuscript to distract him from his fell duties?
This fun-filled event is family friendly and should not be scary to children. There will be space for merchants and lots of activities for those who choose to partake with an evening of bardic during feast. It is required that all pre-register for feast tickets; cut off will be Dec 2. There will be a handful of spare seats available day of the event if we have not met our maximum ticket allotment. Please see Feast Menu for dietary restriction requests.

*Krampus: The half goat, half monster who’s origins date back to the pre-Christian era, was popularized in central Europe (Germany) by the 12 Century. According to legend, he is the son of Hel, the Norse god of the underworld. Krampus and St. Nicholas are said to arrive on the evening of December 5 (Krampusnacht; “Krampus Night”). While St. Nicholas rewards nice children by leaving presents, Krampus disciplines those who misbehaved, sometimes by hitting them with birch branches, and sometimes by stuffing them into a sack and abducting them. All children at the Krampus is Coming event will be assumed to be good little munchkins and will be rewarded for good behaviour, irrespective of the reports of their parents. Members of the Chivalry are assumed to have behaved irreproachably all year long, and had better watch out, and better not cry.
