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 23 from 5 to 9 PM.

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

Friday, 2nd December 2022 / 5pm – 9pm
Saturday, 3rd December 2022 / 12pm – 9pm 
Sunday, 4th December 2022 / 12pm – 5pm 
Friday, 9th December 2022 / 5pm – 9pm 
Saturday, 10th December 2022 / 12pm – 9pm 
Sunday, 11th December 2022 / 12pm – 5pm

Come and Enjoy!
