Austin Trail of Lights works closely with the City of Austin and surrounding neighborhoods to minimize the event’s impact on the community while maximizing the guest experience. However, we encourage you to give yourself extra time to arrive to the Austin Trail of Lights as downtown Austin traffic may be congested or delayed, and road closures may be in effect.
Whether walking, biking, or in need of a ride, there are many ways to get to the Trail and join Austin’s iconic holiday celebration. We have extended your transportation and parking options so that you can find the right one for your friends and family in advance of your evening at the Trail. So plan ahead, relax and enjoy the lights.
Thank you Austin! 2017 Austin Trail of Lights was filled with smiling faces, amazing performances from our community and of course millions of twinkling lights! From spinning under the Zilker Tree, around the carousel and Ferris Wheel to visits with Santa - check out a few highlights!
