Indulge in some retail therapy and give yourself a treat this holiday season. Christmas is getting closer and what better way to shop than at the 37th annual Houston Ballet Nutcracker Market Rockin’ and Shoppin’.

This is a one-stop giant pop-up shop featuring over 280 merchants, including 50 new ones. The annual event offers many unique items including home decor, gourmet food, clothing, toys, novelties, ornaments, pottery, accessories and much more!

After 36 years, the Nutcracker Market has become a loyal tradition for many families and a fun must-have experience for first-time nutcracker market shoppers who are on the lookout for unique and meaningful gifts and who are ready to start the holiday season.

You can also give back this holiday season with your shopping.. proceeds from each admission and special event ticket that is purchased, plus 10% of all the merchandise bought, goes back to Houston Ballet Foundation and its Academy. From the money that was raised last year; 56,000 Houston-area students were exposed to ballet through the Academy’s Education and Community Engagement Programs, $786,947 were awarded to 200 students to continue their dream of studying dance at the Houston Ballet Academy, and students from 299 Houston-area schools got their first opportunity to see ballet and hear from dancers through free programming, performances and classes at Houston Ballet’s prestigious Center for Dance.

You get to help others by just doing your regular holiday shopping.
