Austin's annual Zilker Holiday Tree lighting kicks off the season of festivities in Zilker Park on Sunday, November 25th, and is complimentary and open to anyone to enjoy! Now in it’s 52nd 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.

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!
