The 59th annual Austin Trail of Lights will return to the city's iconic Zilker Park in 2023.
The most beloved, and longest running holiday tradition of its kind in Texas’ capital city, Austin Trail of Lights powered by H-E-B, welcomes hundreds of thousands of guests from Central Texas and around the world each year for its jubilant displays of lights.
Voted 10 Best Public Display of Holiday Lights by USA Today and named one of the best places to see Christmas lights by CNN, the event has grown to be a not-to-be missed community-wide event. Starting as a small community gathering around a yule log in 1965, the Austin Trail of Lights now welcomes more than 400,000 guests from Central Texas and around the world each year for its jubilant display of lights and nightly entertainment. It features more than 2 million lights illuminating the park, 90 lighted holiday trees and more than 70 other holiday displays and lighted tunnels.View Map
