Austin Trail of Lights Grand Opening

December 8, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The AUSTIN TRAIL OF LIGHTS, our city’s most beloved and longest running holiday event, is back for 2022 in its traditional, in-person format!

Produced by the Trail of Lights Foundation, the annual event in Zilker Park celebrates the unique spirit and people of Austin. Visit with friends, families and neighbors while enjoying more than 2 million lights, 70 displays and lighted tunnels, 90 lighted holiday trees, nightly entertainment, Austin’s famous food trucks, and magical holiday activities!

New in ’22
2022 Austin Trail of Lights guests will experience a new layout, thoughtfully designed to encompass new displays, interactive spaces, and talent of all ages on the Zilker stage. Santa will be waiting at the North Pole, while guests make their way through Candy Cane Lane, now home to the premium ZIP Lounge Area. The Trail welcomes all to indulge in the new s’mores program, to visit the Keep Austin Weird local holiday market, and adults are welcome to enjoy a sip at the expanded Cork & Sleigh in the all new Zilker Square area.

PARKING
If you plan to drive to the Austin Trail of Lights, we offer close-in, lot parking at Zilker Park available only with a pre-paid parking pass. There are a limited number of spots available in each parking lot each night, and parking areas will be filled in order of arrival. All parking passes must be purchased in advance, online.
