Village of Rosemont Partners with “Nutcracker! Magical Christmas Ballet” to Host First-Ever “Nutcracker Village” Public Art Project This Holiday Season

The Village of Rosemont will deck the halls this holiday season with the debut of its first ever Nutcracker Village. In partnership with NUTCRACKER! Magical Christmas Ballet, scheduled to return to the Rosemont Theatre for two special performances on December 3rd, 20 six-foot-tall custom-painted Nutcrackers sponsored by Rosemont businesses and organizations will be on display from November 18 through December 31 at some of Rosemont’s most popular holiday destinations.

A portion of proceeds from the Nutcracker Village sponsorships will be donated to Advocate Children’s Hospital in Park Ridge. As one of the largest network providers of pediatric services in Illinois and among the top 10 in the country, Advocate Children’s Hospital is recognized for clinical excellence in cancer care, cardiology and cardiovascular surgery at the Advocate Children’s Heart Institute, maternal fetal medicine and more.

“We’re proud to partner with NUTCRACKER! Magical Christmas Ballet to debut our first-ever Nutcracker Village this holiday season,” said Rosemont Mayor Brad Stephens. “These life-size nutcrackers representing some of our many businesses and organizations will spread holiday cheer amongst our visitors while also giving back to the community.”

“The Village of Rosemont is a fantastic partner for our inaugural Nutcracker Village,” says Dan Talmi, producer from Talmi Entertainment. “We are grateful for the wonderful sponsors that are helping bring this to life and help us support Advocate Children’s Hospital.”
