Zilker Tree Holiday Festival

(Formerly the Trail of Lights)


Zilker Tree Holiday Festival
December 13-21, 2009
6pm-10pm
Zilker Park
2201 Barton Springs RD
Austin, Texas 78746
Free Admission - $10/parking



The big news for December 2009 is that the city of Austin has decided to scale back and restructure Zilker Park's hugely popular annual Trail of Lights festival and replace it with a less electricity-intensive celebration.

The decision is a result of the economic downturn and budgetary issues. The Trail of Lights has been a Zilker Park fixture since 1992, but it burns an incredible wattage of cash each year.

The Zilker Tree Holiday Festival is a nine night festival with an emphasis on family-friendly activities and attractions including a free concert by Asleep at the Wheel on the last night December 21, 2009 (a Monday).

There is a Santa's house and post office and, of course, plenty of food vendors and arts and crafts exhibitors.

The 2009 Zilker Holiday Tree Lighting still takes place (December 6, 2009) and the tree remains lit through December 31st. The city of Austin will revisit the future of the Trail of Lights in 2010.
