Winter Faire & Market Tickets

Purchase Tickets

At Shakespeare Dallas’ Winter Faire & Market you will be whisked away to a winter wonderland of yore. Samuell-Grand Amphitheatre, also the location for Shakespeare in the Park, will be transformed into an olde English market where you can shop the best local artisans, drink and feast like a King or Queen, and experience the entertainment, games, music, and general merriment of the season. Plus, don’t be surprised by costumed characters that may be roaming the Park! Proceeds from the market benefit Shakespeare Dallas and our inaugural winter season of Hamlet at Moody Performance Hall.
