Austin Trail of Lights
The Austin Trail of Lights is the city’s largest holiday tradition, attracting hundreds of thousands of people each year. What began as a small gathering in 1965 known as the "Yule Fest," a gift to the city of Austin from Austin Parks and Recreation Department, has now grown to be a community-wide celebration where we you can experience the magic of the holidays.
The Trail of Lights features more than 2 million lights illuminating the park, 90 lighted holiday trees, and more than 70 other holiday displays and lighted tunnels. Passes are on sale now for the drive-thru-only event, running November 28 through January 3, and are available at austintrailoflights.org.
