Austin Trail of Lights
Celebrate the Magic
Austin’s largest holiday tradition. Now entering it's 55th year, the annual December event in Austin's iconic Zilker Park celebrates the unique spirit and people that make Austin the place many love to call home. The much loved Trail, visited by over 400,000 annually, showcases over 2.5 million lights, 70 light tunnels and displays, 5 specialty nights, 45 holiday parties, 78 live music and performances, 32 food trucks, and family fun.
Produced by Forefront since 2012, the Austin Trail of Lights is a community event like no other that celebrates the holidays in the heart of Austin. Through tax-deductible sponsor donations, the Trail of Lights Foundation ensures the experience is accessible to the full Austin community. For those seeking festive venues for holiday parties, Forefront's VIP and Corporate events team hosts dozens of holiday parties inside the Trail of Lights, where catering, bartenders, DJ's (and even a visit from Santa) are all possible.
