Gate entry, premium tickets, parking and shuttle passes to Austin’s iconic holiday festival now available online

Tickets to the 55th annual Austin Trail of Lights, powered by H-E-B, are now available online at Austin’s largest holiday tradition, and the second biggest event in the city, will be open from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. nightly from Tuesday, December 10 through Monday, December 23, 2019. The Trail of Lights Foundation ensures general admission is free and open-to-the-public seven out of the festival’s 14 nights, but limited quantities of premium tickets, allowing expedited “prepaid” entrance to skip the long lines and other perks, are also available. Visitors are encouraged to purchase passes ahead of time to secure access on their preferred dates.

Voted 10 Best Public Display of Holiday Lights by USA Today and named one of the best places to see Christmas lights by CNN, the event has grown to be a not-to-be missed tradition and community-wide event that celebrates the spirit and the people that make Austin unique. The Austin Trail of Lights features more than 2 million lights illuminating the park, 90 lighted holiday trees, and more than 70 other holiday displays and lighted tunnels. See the event calendar here for which nights offer free entry and which nights carry a $5 entry fee. Children 11 and under are always free of charge.
