Who is Krampus? He’s half-man, half-goat (and you know how we love goats) who comes around every year and doesn’t exactly leave gifts under your tree. Austrian/German legend says he would come chase naughty children and sometimes drag them to the underworld with him. He has been frightening children for hundreds of years. Krampus is the bad boy of the celebrations of winter solstice. Around early to mid-December this menace would come around and punish the bad kids. This day to the Alpine region of Austria and parts of Germany were known as Krampusnacht or Krampus Night when adults would dress up as Krampus to frighten the children in their homes to be well behaved. Children may also have seen Krampus running through the streets during what is called, “Krampuslauf” of Krampus Run. The Krampuslauf which isn’t tied to a specific day, was a way for grown men to blow off steam and to get drunk and run through the streets dressed like a fearsome creature. The Krampuslauf tradition continues in Munich and Austria today.
We thought we would have some fun with this Apline tradition and make our own twist on it. On Krampusnacht we will have AXE THROWING, face painting, live music, several delicious food trucks, all local handmade items for your holiday shopping list and free beer samples for those 21 and older.
Check our social media links below for vendor highlights and some sneak peeks at the fun that will be had!

The Equinox Night Market THANKS YOU!
The fall Equinox is an important time for many cultures throughout history. It is a time that occurs when night and day are equal in length. This time marks the end of summer and the beginning of autumn. In many cultures around the world it is still celebrated as a time of harvest, giving, and festivals such as the Chinese Mooncake Festival, Druids celebrate Alban Elfed (meaning “the light of the water”, and The Romans held a festival dedicated to Pomona, goddess of fruits and growing things.
However, the most famous ancient myth comes from Greece. In Ancient Greek mythology, the onset of fall is closely linked to the story of the abduction of Persephone, also called Kore or Cora. She was a goddess who was abducted from her mother, harvest goddess Demeter, and taken to the underworld to become the wife of Hades, the god-king of the underworld. We celebrated with the inaugural Equinox Night Market with live music provided by Profound Revelations Studios, a recording studio located in Downtown Brooksville. Many vendors joined us as well as Potato Ballin’ Food Truck! We held our first raffle with lots of great items provided by the vendors of the market as well as local Brooksville businesses! It was a great event and we look forward to our next monthly market which will be held on Sat. October 22nd. In case you missed the event, check out some of the photos.
