    About

    Austin Trail of Lights is back for 2022 in its traditional, in person format!

    Complimentary Nights: December 8, 9, 11, 13, 14, 15, 18

    Produced by the Trail of Lights Foundation, the annual event in Zilker Park celebrates the unique spirit and people of Austin. Visit with friends, families and neighbors while enjoying more than 2 million lights, 70 displays and lighted tunnels, 90 lighted holiday trees, nightly entertainment, Austin’s famous food trucks, and magical holiday activities!

    New in '22
    2022 Austin Trail of Lights guests will experience a new layout, thoughtfully designed to encompass new displays, interactive spaces, and talent of all ages on the Zilker stage. Santa will be waiting at the North Pole, while guests make their way through Candy Cane Lane, now home to the premium ZIP Lounge Area. The Trail welcomes all to indulge in the new s'mores program, to visit the Keep Austin Weird local holiday market, and adults are welcome to enjoy a sip at the expanded Cork & Sleigh in the all new Zilker Square area.
