+ Zilker Tree

Austin's annual Zilker Holiday Tree lighting kicks off the season of festivities in Zilker Park on Sunday, December 1st, and is open to anyone to enjoy for free! Now in it’s 53rd year, the Zilker Holiday Tree is the largest man-made holiday tree, built upon one of Austin's 17 historic moontowers. Access to the Zilker Tree is totally independent from Trail of Lights admission, but we encourage you to come down to Zilker Park and enjoy both! The tree will be shining tall and bright above Austin nightly thru December 31st. Food vendors and other merchants will also operate at the tree throughout the month of December.
