‘Tis the season to celebrate! One cold night very soon, in the wee hours of the morning, children
will be visited by magical beings… but not Santa this time... It’s Krampus time!

the sinister and scary side of Christmas at their 4th Annual Krampus Pageant. On December
3rd, from 3pm to 7pm, come to the El Rio to watch a pageant where the naughty creatures of
San Francisco will join a panel of steely judges and compete for a chance to be crowned the
Krampus of 2022.

pageant will also feature some very special (and spooky) drag performances and live music! The competition will be on the outdoor patio, and proof of vaccination is required to enter the venue.
