This year, Houston Ballet’s Nutcracker Marker offers a welcome solution with its new Spring Spectacular. Taking place April 12-14 at NRG Center, Spring Spectacular is the sunny flip side to the highly anticipated Nutcracker Market. This inaugural event will host some 150 merchants from across the country - bringing with them a full assortment of seasonal items, apparel, accessories, jewelry, gourmet food and home décor suited to the warm weather months and spring and summer holidays.
Like Nutcracker Market, Spring Spectacular will serve as a fundraiser that allows shoppers to give back to the Houston Ballet Foundation, its Academy and scholarship programs. Eleven percent of all merchandise sales, plus the proceeds from admission tickets, supports the various programs of Houston Ballet and its Academy.
Of the 150 merchants, nearly 30 of them will make their debut during Spring Spectacular. These first-time merchant offerings include pepper grills in fun shapes, colorful, handmade straw tote bags, gourmet foods for summer menus, floral décor, baseball-themed memorabilia, and clothing and accessories to refresh outgoing winter wardrobes. Regulars to Nutcracker Market can expect to find familiar favorite vendors such as The Round Top Collection and The Royal Standard with a fresh selection of products to fit the spring theme.
On Monday, March 11, discount general admission tickets go on sale at all Randalls locations across Houston. Early Bird and group sale general admission tickets can be purchased now by calling 713-535-3231. Discount tickets may also be purchased from Ticketmaster.com beginning March 1.
