HOUSTON — Is almost time to lace up your sneakers and shop till you drop at Nutcracker Market SPRING.

Nearly 150 merchants from across the country will tempt shoppers with seasonal items, clothing, accessories and home décor.

Tickets are now on sale for the event at NRG Center from April 16-18.

Because of the ongoing COVID pandemic, there will be some changes this year.

Masks are required indoors and outdoors on NRG Park property for everyone ages 2 and older. If you can’t wear a mask because of a health condition, organizers say you should visit another time when they’re not required.

Health screenings will be performed on everyone entering NRG Park.

Visitors of all ages must buy a ticket because of capacity restrictions.

All tickets must be purchased in advance and can only be used for that day; they are $20 on ticketmaster.com or $18 at H-E-B business centers.
