Nutcracker Market Spring

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. However, we have moved it online! Read the below for details regarding our Virtual 2020 Spring Nutcracker Marketplace, happening now through April 30 on Facebook.

Nutcracker Market

Our 40th Anniversary! November 12-15, 2020 NRG Center


The Nutcracker Market was devastated to have had to cancel the SPRING market set for April 17-19 at NRG Center. Therefore, in lieu of the physical Market, we are proud to announce the opening of the 2020 Spring Nutcracker Marketplace, a virtual market where our merchants can showcase their merchandise, and our shoppers can shop from the comfort of their own home, from Wednesday, March 25 through Thursday, April 30.
Join us on Facebook and shop over 120 merchants with thousands of unique items including apparel, vacation accessories, men’s items, jewelry, gifts for graduation, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, gourmet food, home décor and more.
Please JOIN THE GROUP HERE and share the group with your family and friends!! Your support for these small businesses is greatly appreciated! THANK YOU in advance, for shopping with us.


Following the recommendations of all Health and Government officials, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Nutcracker Market SPRING (April 17-19 at NRG Center). As hopeful and optimistic as we have been over the last few weeks, the ever-changing situation regarding COVID-19 has proved too risky for the health, safety and welfare of our shoppers, merchants, committee members, sponsors, volunteers, and staff. 

The following options are available to those who have already purchased Early Bird tickets to Nutcracker Market SPRING. Please email by MAY 15 with your decision.


  1. We need your support now more than ever! Help reinvest in our future by donating your payment amount to Houston Ballet Nutcracker Market. As you may know, all ticket proceeds go towards supporting Houston Ballet Foundation, its Academy and scholarship programs. Your donation is extremely appreciated, and we are grateful for the support during this particularly difficult and turbulent time. 
  2. Transfer the amount you paid for your SPRING ticket(s) and put it toward purchasing a ticket to the Nutcracker Market 40th Anniversary, November 12-15 at NRG Center. Please note that if you choose this option, you will be charged for the additional funds (i.e. $20 should you transfer your SPRING Early Bird purchase towards a fall Early Bird ticket) to your original form of payment.
  3. Request a full refund to the original form of payment.

If you purchased a General Admission ticket from H-E-B, you may go back to the same location to request your refund.

We appreciate your patience, understanding and cooperation during this time. Should you have any questions or concerns, please send us an email at Due to high volume of emails, please allow 48 hours for a response from Houston Ballet Nutcracker Market.

Thank you,
The Nutcracker Market Team
