Los Angeles Krampus Run


Past Event

Location Info:

Downtown Los Angeles
Los Angeles, CA  90014
Santa's for suckers. For LA.'.s darkside-loving denizens, it's all about the Krampus, and for six years now the annual Los Angeles Krampuslauf (Krampus Run) has been gathering fans of the Central European folklore figure for a raucous procession through the depths of downtown (Winston between Main and Los Angeles streets). And it's happening during Art Walk! Expect Krampusy chaos as people dressed in hairy and horny getups pound the pavement and party like animals. The run/walk portion is from 8 to 9 p.m., followed by a free gathering at the Lash (117 Winston St.) from 9 to 10 p.m. How all these horrific holiday hijinx are going to stay within the perimeters of a mere two hours is anyone's guess, but don't be surpised to see more faux fur in downtown's surrounding bars and hangouts on Thursday. Those interested in being an official performer at the event, email info@krampuslosangeles.com.
