What: ??????? is returning to Sanford! Even with so many naughty children to stuff in his sack, Krampus is still finding time to honor Hollerbach’s with a visit for the fourth year in a row. Come to Hollerbach’s on December 5th and meet the dreaded old horned goat-demon himself in person!
??? ?? ???? ?? ? ????????
We’ll give you the brief version: according to certain traditions, ??? ???????? (St. Nicholas) is sometimes accompanied by a “helper” to deal with the naughty kids while he reads stories and gives presents to the good kids: either Knecht Ruprecht or the feared goat-demon Krampus, who wears a basket to carry bad children away!
But in parts of Europe – and more recently, even here in North America – there’s also a growing tradition of people dressing up in frightening Krampus costumes and forming a parade in the village to wreak havoc in the streets, scream like demons, rattle chains and bells, and generally cause non-violent mayhem: the ???????????, or Krampus Run. Krampus was so impressed with last year’s turnout that he wants to see another Krampuslauf in Sanford this year, which will run at 7:30 pm from the Willow Tree to our friends at West End Trading Co. just a few blocks away for a free heavy metal show!
????? ????????? ??????? ??????? ????? ??? ?? ????:
– This event is free to attend – no admission, no cover charge, no reservations
– Krampus costumes not required but highly encouraged! Suggested sources of design inspiration include YouTube and Facebook Events and Groups with “Krampus” in the title
– Although Hollerbach’s is a family-friendly establishment, please keep in mind that Krampus, the guests dressed as him, the images displayed on screen, and the background music will create an atmosphere that could be too intense and even frightening for children who don’t understand that Krampus is NOT REAL (or is he?…)
– Our Willow Tree German Restaurant and Biergarten will be still be offering the full regular menu, but there will also be a special Krampusnacht menu – details coming soon!
-Our house folk music band
Jimmy & Eckhard will still be performing their usual show on the Willow Tree stage 6-9 pm.

– We will be serving a ??? ???????-?????? ?????-????? ??????? ????!
