HOUSTON – One of Houston’s most popular shopping experiences is returning this year in full force.

Celebrating their 40th anniversary this holiday season, Houston Ballet’s Nutcracker Market will return for in-person shopping. The event went virtual last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

According to its website, this year’s market will take place at NRG Center Nov. 11-14, with preview days included.

Tickets to the market will be valid one-day only and will go on sale beginning Aug. 16 via Ticketmaster and at participating H-E-B stores starting October 11. Group ticket sales are also available for a discount.

All ticket sales are final and proceeds will support Houston Ballet Foundation and scholarships.

Merchant applications and volunteer applications are now open. Click here to learn more.
