Witchcraft, Yule Celebrations and Art Emerge at Mystic District Marketplace: The Enchanted Slay Ride in Underground Atlanta

Kick-off the holiday season with a dark, underground artistic experience featuring witchy vendors, immersive art and live performances.

Mystic District Marketplace invites you to an unforgettable evening of mischief, as The Enchanted Slay Ride takes over MOM SAID ITS FINE in Underground Atlanta on December 1st. Frankie &  Marley Productions and cfcm | design present an immersive experience that’s more than just a ride – it’s a journey into a world of Yule magic, live performances featuring an all queer cast, and occult vendors. 

Embrace the darker side of the holidays and capture memories with Krampus, the mythical creature of folklore. Attendees will have the opportunity to take photos with this legendary figure, adding a touch of mystique to their holiday photo albums.

Watch the drag and burlesque show hosted by JayBella Bank$, with a live musical performance by Coruja and then “Get Slayed” at the dance party featuring local Atlanta DJs, Necromanny and Abby Dear

Mystic District Marketplace is the perfect opportunity to find unique gifts for the magical beings in your life. Explore unique vendors like aura photographers, palm readers and taxidermy artists and get playful with holiday themed art installations throughout the market. 

“Mystic District Marketplace is where multiple facets of art merge for a one-of-a-kind, accessible and community based night of underground entertainment. Our vendors and performers are specially selected to fit the vibe of the show and theme. We are thrilled to be back at Underground Atlanta for our seventh edition of this production.” – said Liz Peña, Producer of Mystic District Marketplace. 

Experienced event producers Liz Peña, an artist curator, designer and marketer, along with Chrissy Culver, the fabricator and designer who brought Red Bull Unlocked to life, will each share their unique talents to create a witchy and enchanted event posed to kick-off a hauntingly magical holiday season. 

“I’ve designed the Krampus costume to custom fit the vibe of the market. So expect touches of the most popularly known mystical and terrifying Krampus mixed with Tim Curry’s character,  Dr. Frank-N-Furter, from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. My aim is to capture the essence of the traditional Yule holiday mixed with the queer and feminine culture of Mystic District.” – said Chrissy Culver, owner of cfcm | design.

In addition, ticket holders can sip on non-alcoholic concoctions from the elixir bar featuring holiday drinks, engage with pop-up performances and have a chance to win a raffle with prizes from local businesses. A portion of the raffle proceeds will be donated directly to Sol Underground, a Black-led anti-fascist and anti-capitalist ecosystem fighting for Black & Indigenous liberation.

The market opens at 8:00 pm and the show starts at 10:00 pm. Purchase entry tickets to the show on Universe for $15 ahead of the show and $20 at the door. Photo packages for Krampus, which includes a handmade ornament and free drink from the elixir bar, start at $12.
