Kris Kringle Village


Fort Wayne Ballet is excited to launch Kris Kringle Village as part of its festivities with The Nutcracker and to center seasonal holiday activity on the Arts Campus. The village takes its cue from traditional German Christmas Markets that fill the holidays with food, entertainment, and seasonal ornaments, gifts, and fare. The market opens with a “Market Preview” during the downtown “Night of Lights” festivities on November 24 from 5 to 9 PM.

Regular village hours will mirror Fort Wayne Ballet’s weekend performances of The Nutcracker:

Friday, December 3, 4-10 PM
Saturday, December 4, 4-10 PM
Sunday, December 5, 12-5 p.m.
Friday, December 10, 4-10 PM
Saturday, December 11, 4-10 PM
Sunday, December 12, 12-5 PM

Come and Enjoy!
