Enjoy much of what you love about the Nutcracker Market but in the spring - but less crowded! Nearly 150 merchants from across the country will showcase unique seasonal items, including summer apparel, vacation accessories, gourmet food, home decor items for spring and summer holidays and much more.

Proceeds from each admission ticket that you purchase, plus 10% of all the merchandise you buy, goes back to Houston Ballet Foundation, its Academy and scholarship programs.


One-day General Admission tickets are now on sale at any H-E-B Business Center for $18 and for $20 + fees. These are our ONLY TWO AUTHORIZED RETAILERS. Please beware of scam websites selling tickets.

*Ticket restrictions have now been lifted! You may attend the Market on any day of your choosing, regardless of what day your ticket says. You may also buy your Ticketmaster ticket at the Market via the QR code signs posted at the ticket windows.


*All persons ages two (2) and older are REQUIRED TO WEAR A MASK upon entry into NRG Center. If you have a health condition that prohibits you from wearing a face mask, we kindly ask they visit the Nutcracker Market at another time when face masks are not required.

*Due to capacity restrictions set forth by our local jurisdiction, all persons regardless of age are required to have a ticket.
