The Radio City Christmas Spectacular 2016 literally kicks off the holiday season in NYC. Since 1933, the tap dancers, flying Santa and of course the Rockettes have put on one of the city’s most classic Christmas spectacles. If The Nutcracker from New York City Ballet is too stuffy and doesn’t have enough camels onstage for you, this show is the one to see. Here’s everything you need to know about getting tickets, the 60,000 pounds of props used and just how many hours of high kicking it takes to prep for a show.

When is the Radio City Christmas Spectacular 2016?

The Radio City Christmas Spectacular takes place from November 11, 2016 through January 2, 2017.

Where is the Radio City Christmas Spectacular 2016?

The Radio City Christmas Spectacular is at Radio City Music Hall at Rockefeller Center. Take the B, D, F or M to 47th-50th/Rockefeller Center, or the 1 to 50th St./Broadway.

Tis the season! This show is a staple for me every year. What better way to ring in the holidays and new year then with the spectacular Rockettes. Also, if you have not been to Radio City Music Hall during the show's run, you are missing out. It's nothing short then magical :)
