Stars Program

Presented by Vista Equity Partners

Thanks to generous donations from Vista Equity Partners and dozens of businesses and individuals, STARS at the Trail extends the joy of the Austin Trail of Lights to nonprofit organizations across Austin.

The STARS at the Trail program was created to ensure that those people in our community, who may not otherwise have the opportunity, are given a magical holiday experience tailored exclusively for them. Every year, the Trail hosts deserving children, families, seniors, first responders and veterans for an incredible experience. Since 2013 STARS at The Trail has worked with 20 local non-profit organizations to bring over 10,000 individuals to the Trail of Lights.
