Minneapolis Krampus Ride

  • 3161 Park Avenue Minneapolis, MN, 55407 United States (map)

The Annual Minneapolis Krampus Bike Ride is back, with chains-a-rattling and horns-a-sharpened! 

What is it? Each year we raise money online and in person to ride our bikes out to Kiddywampus in Hopkins and The Wild Rumpus in Linden Hills to buy toys and books, then deliver them to the People Serving People Homeless Shelter downtown. 

Donations can be made at or PayPaled directly to me at or brought to the ride in the form of cash or a debit/credit purchase in the stores.

We have no overhead whatsoever, so every cent donated will go towards the purchase of toys and books for kids spending the holidays in the shelter. Anyone who donates will receive an email with pictures of the ride and how it all went down. We deliver all toys and books by bicycle, no matter what the weather throws at us. ALL are welcome to ride and no one will be left behind. This isn’t a race and you will all be included. We love any costumes and encourage riders to put horns on their helmets or add any other festive or demonic adornment.
