+ Grand Opening - Thursday, December 8

Join us for our Grand Opening celebration as H-E-B helps us kick off the 58th annual Austin Trail of Lights holiday season on Thursday, December 8th. The official first night at the Trail begins with a ceremonial flipping of the switch by AISD students lead by our H-E-B partners. One lucky student winner of our Austin Trail of Lights Holiday Writing Contest will be invited to flip the switch, turning on the front entry lights and opening the Austin Trail of Lights to the public for the first time of the season.

General Admission is FREE for all guests on Tuesday, December 8, 2022 from 7:00-10:00 pm and will include a variety of special entertainment and programming to ring in the holiday season! ZIP and Platinum admission passes are also available for Grand Opening and permit entry beginning at 6:00 pm, one hour before the general public, plus other amenities. Start your holiday season in style!
