OSBA presents Ballet West’s Nutcracker
The traditional Christmas ballet is coming to Ogden for an early start to the holiday season.
E.T.A. Hoffman’s story of “The Nutcracker,” paired to Tchaikovsky’s classical music, was first performed in Moscow in 1891. The two-act ballet has become an international Christmas classic, with songs from the show reverberating in department stores and Christmas parties throughout the holiday season.
Showings will be held at WSU’s Val A. Browning Center on Nov. 24 at 7 p.m. and Nov. 25 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m..
Cinnabar Aprés Music
Snowbasin’s Cinnabar free music program starts up again on Nov. 24 and 25 from 3:30–6:00 p.m..
Salt Lake City indie blues rock group Penrose will perform on Nov. 24. Lead singer Madison Penrose was a Top 30 Finalist on American Idol in 2014. The group of four came together in 2015 to create music that has been compared to Paramore, ZZ Ward and Pink.
On Nov. 25, Cinnabar will host Pixie & the Partygrass Boys for — you guessed it —party bluegrass music. The group of native Utah musicians united over a love for bluegrass and Wasatch skiing.
Every Saturday following Thanksgiving, downtown Ogden “lights up” with the Christmas Village. Along with colorful light displays, cottages will be set up providing visitors with hot chocolate, holiday treats and festive decorations.

Live entertainment will occur Mon.–Sat. from 6–8 p.m.
The village will be set up until Jan. 4, 2018, and the lights will be lit from 5 p.m.–12 a.m.
