Austin Trail of Lights will return this year—as a drive-thru event

The anticipation is over—tickets for the 2020 Austin Trail of Lights are on sale.


Over 2 million lights will illuminate Zilker Park this holiday season after concern that the annual event would be canceled. The Trail of Lights Foundation announced in mid-September that the event will take place as a drive-thru only experience, due to the pandemic.

Guests will be able to drive through the Trail of Lights from Nov. 28, 2020 to Jan. 3, 2021, after Austin City Council voted to approve the change and extend the event period to 30 days, adding two additional weeks to enjoy the lights.

General admission tickets are available for between 7-10 p.m. and range from $25-$35 per vehicle, depending on entry time. Guests can also purchase a dash pass on selected dates for $60 per vehicle, which includes a box of holiday cookies, an ATX Lights Savings Card and early entry between 5:45-7 p.m.

This year's event will also feature a premiere night, where guests can purchase tickets for opening night on Nov. 28 for $95 per vehicle and will include all the amenities of a dash pass.

Tickets and more information on the 56th annual Austin Trail of Lights can be found at austintrailoflights.org.
