Christmas Is Not the Same Without It

Trail of Lights – Until December 23rd – Maps

This Christmas tradition dates to 1965. Austin doesn’t understand Christmas without it. No wonder, it’s one of the top ten holiday displays in America according to USA Today. But beyond the lights, the Trail of Lights is an emotional link with our childhood that makes us remember better, more innocent times. This year we will walk through Zilker Park again with our eyes full of unforgettable images and our hearts full of emotions. Plus, a handful of select food trucks make this place a top-notch foodie destination this holiday season.

Lovers of Italian cuisine and all those who carry Italy in their genes understand Christmas Eve as the day they meet again with the Feast of the Seven Fishes. This menu with various seafood dishes is a marvel for the senses. It has the best specimens from the Adriatic, pasta and various starters that make it the most spectacular foodie proposal for this holiday. You can finally enjoy it in a genuine way in Austin. On December 24 and 25, a little piece of Italy awaits you at the tables of L’Oca d’Oro.

We must not forget the true spirit of Christmas. For this reason, it is a wonderful idea to support all those who cannot enjoy full parties. Giving Tuesday offers you the possibility to help all those who need it. You can do it by donating blood, time, money, food, or in many other ways. Christmas is time to give.

Lights on the Lake

Mozart’s – Until January 6th – Map


For yet another year, one of the city’s most endearing traditions is celebrated at Mozart’s. The light and music show are renewed and never ceases to amaze us. A smile is outlined with the illusion of a child in each of the notes of the songs illuminated by its spectacular lights. It’s time to go to the lake, follow the lights to that place full of world coffees and a dazzling bakery. A combination that always tastes like Christmas in Austin.

Christmas as a State of Mind

Miracle on 5th Street – Until December 27th – Map

If there is a place where Christmas is present, that is Miracle on 5th Street. Cookies, cocktails, ancestral recipes, Christmas decorations and an endless number of objects and flavors. They all come together in this pop-up where Christmas becomes a state of mind. We have been waiting for this miracle for a year, although, fortunately, we can savor Christmas at Lala’s Golden Nugget every day of the year.

New Year’s Eve with a Texan Accent

Disco Cowboy – December 31 – 9PM – W Hotel – From $125 – Map



A year with so many emotions should be said goodbye in a big way and with a very Texan style. At the W Hotel they have organized a party where the Cowboy meets Disco and the fun couldn’t be more complete. Vinyl Ranch’s Disco Cowboy will emcee a night to remember. Good music, lots of champagne and an irresistible concept to say goodbye to the year with a Texan accent and outfit.

Showmoon wishes you a Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year 2023.
