The Nutcracker Market proudly salutes our very special honoree this year…YOU, the supporter of the Nutcracker Market.

Whether you are a shopper, committee member, staff member, donor, volunteer, merchant, vendor, sponsor, or social media follower, YOU have been an integral part in making this Market the success that it is. Without your interest, curiosity, passion, dedication, enthusiasm, generosity, hard work, commitment, and love… the Market simply wouldn’t be where it is today. Since our inception in 1981, YOU have helped us contribute over $75.3 million dollars to the Houston Ballet Foundation in support of its Academy and scholarship programs. Although saying “Thank You” does not seem to be enough, we are truly grateful for 40 years of support.
