Presented by Houston Ballet at NRG Center

The 39th annual Houston Ballet Nutcracker Market is returning to usher in Houston’s holiday season with its one-of-a-kind shopping extravaganza. Shoppers will be delighted to find the classic line-up of fan favorites, alongside more than 20 new, hand-selected merchants.  The four-day event will host more than 260 merchants from across the country, showcasing unique holiday items, gourmet food, apparel, jewelry, accessories, home décor and more. This year’s theme, “Clara’s Dream,” pays homage to the Market’s namesake – creating a scene reminiscent of the beautiful Nutcracker Ballet – and plenty of shopping.

Nutcracker Market is a fundraiser that allows shoppers to give back to our community. Proceeds from admission tickets plus 11% of merchandise sales stay right here in Houston supporting Houston Ballet Foundation, its Academy and scholarship programs.
