We are seeking volunteers for the Nutcracker Market, November 10-13, 2022 at NRG Center! 

The Nutcracker Market is Houston Ballet's largest fundraiser. All proceeds benefit the Houston Ballet Foundation, the Houston Ballet Academy, and Academy scholarship funds. It takes more than 1,000 volunteers to make the Market run smoothly, and we need your help.

About Volunteering
Choose from selling tickets at our ticket windows, wrapping ornaments at our Ornament Barre, handing out programs at Market entrance, setting up tables for our luncheons, and more! Each shift is between 2-4 hours. Some people work one day and some people work multiple days - it's completely up to you. Each day that you work, you will receive free admission to the Market so you can shop and explore before or after your shift.

Volunteer Perks
- Free parking on the day(s) of your shift(s)
- Free Market entry the day(s) of your shift(s) 
- Access to our Volunteer Lounge
