The Land of Sweets Nutcracker Luncheon

Join us for The Nutcracker Luncheon, Cincinnati Ballet’s favorite family-friendly holiday celebration! Back for the first time since 2019, Music Hall Ballroom will be transformed into an awe-inspiring winter wonderland sure to be every child’s candy-coated dream come true!  

Enjoy kid-friendly food, adult-friendly beverages, performances by Cincinnati Ballet Professional Training Division Dancers, holiday treats, carolers, interactive experiences, and photo opportunities with your favorite costumed Nutcracker characters!  

The Nutcracker Luncheon is one of Cincinnati Ballet’s most anticipated signature fundraising events, and we expect to sell out quickly, so don’t wait to secure your spot! 

Proceeds from this event support Cincinnati Ballet and its unique and inspiring stage performances, extensive educational and community programs, and our Otto M. Budig Academy.
