winter show preview night
Because of the preview’s restricted numbers the crowds were so much better. It was so full the last time we attended we were thinking of skipping it all together this winter. but the preview night was sooooo much better.
Love love loved it. I usually gave $5 when I attend on Saturday or Sunday anyway!
Loved attending UCU’s preview when the crowds were light. It gave me a chance to talk to the vendors, get close to the booths, and take my time.
This was SO SO SO worth it. I loved not having to fight hundreds of folks. It was a bit crowded but nothing like the usual fight just to walk through the crowd. I would pay up to $10 for a similar experience next year (smaller crowds, raffles).
I really like the idea of the Preview Night. This was the second time I went and it was just easier with the later hours, better parking availability, and had a more private feel 🙂
This was my first time and I had so much fun! I really liked the option of preview night. It didn’t feel too crowded which I was worried about. I like that you had tables around for places to stop and regroup.

Parking rates at the Mercer garages during Preview Night are traditionally VERY expensive due to the Nutcracker Ballet which happens this same evening — sometimes as much as $30 for the night. We have contracted a discounted rate with the Mercer garages (one at 3rd Ave., and one at 5th ave.) to guarantee a flat $23 parking rate for our guests. If you’d like to secure this discounted rate you may purchase it along with your Preview Night ticket. When you arrive at the parking garage, your name will be on a guest list (under the name of the ticket purchaser) and you will be allowed free entry to the garage.
The deadline to purchase this discounted parking will be Monday, November 27th. The reason for this is that we need time to finalize the list and make sure the parking garage has it exactly how they need it to be able to help you out when you arrive on Friday night!
