Krampusnacht DC is joining us in the Lodge during the Holiday Market this year! Krampus will happily accept donations of unwrapped, new gifts and gift cards for youth 0-21 years on behalf of the program supporting the National Center for Children and Families (NCCF), a 501(c)(3). 100% of your donations and the funds raised by Krampusnacht DC’s events go directly to support DC foster youth. In their new partnership with NCCF, Krampus is helping to bring Christmas gifts to even more foster children than ever before, delivering ~250 personalized Christmas gifts for youth in the DC foster system. Mark your calendars — the 7th annual Krampusnacht DC is on Saturday, December 1st at Gallery O on H St from 5-11pm.

Pets & Kiddos

The Holiday Market is definitely kid friendly. During VIP hours, children 10 and younger are free. However, due to large crowds & the location of the market, dogs/pets will NOT be admitted inside. Please leave your four-legged friends at home unless they are a service animal. We also request that you plan to leave the stroller in the car (we’ll have limited “parking” space to store strollers near the entrance).


Speaking of parking, space in our lot will be reduced due to the food trucks and vendor parking. Please plan to take a ride-sharing service, cab, bicycle or public transportation to the brewery that day. Some parking is also available in the shopping center’s lot at the top of the drive, as well as along Bladensburg Ave.
