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. Since 2013 STARS at The Trail has worked with 40 local non-profit organizations to bring over 20,000 individuals to the Trail of Lights including children, families, seniors and veterans.
The deadline to apply for the 2023 STARS at the Trail program has passed. Accepted organizations will be notified in early November.
