2018 Houston Ballet Nutcracker Market

November 8, 2018 - November 11, 2018

Houston Ballet

Kick off the holiday shopping frenzy November 8-11 at the 38th annual Houston Ballet Nutcracker Market—the signature holiday fundraising shopping event in Texas!

Chaired by Wendy Wilkins Burks, this year’s “Cruising into Christmas” Market will feature over 280 merchants from across the country showcasing unique gift items, including home décor, gourmet food, apparel, toys, candles, jewelry, novelties, accessories and more.

From humble beginnings in a community church in 1981 to a four-day shopping extravaganza at NRG Center, the Houston Ballet Nutcracker Market has become a loyal tradition for many families and a highly anticipated holiday shopping event. Proceeds from each admission and special event ticket, plus 11 percent of merchandise sales directly benefit Houston Ballet Foundation, its Academy and scholarship programs.

General Admission tickets can be purchased online here and will go on sale at Houston-area Randalls locations and Nutcracker Market merchant stores beginning October 15. Early Bird tickets are $50 each and can be ordered by calling 713.535.3231 before November 2.
