Nutcracker in the Castle

November 17, 2022 - January 9, 2023

November 18, 2022 – January 9, 2023

Experience the Nutcracker story at the 16th annual Nutcracker in the Castle in the elaborately decorated, historic Paine Art Center and Gardens. We invite you to twirl through the elaborately decorated halls of the Paine and get lost in this beloved holiday fairy tale. Stop by the Sugar Plum Fairy’s Cupcake Café afterward for a delightful baked good from Tamara the Cake Guru. Check out the Paine’s event description and Frequently Asked Questions for more information about the Nutcracker in the Castle event.
