Join Us at the Holiday Sing-Along and Tree Lighting at the Capitol, Dec. 3 (rain or shine)

Kick off the season at the Holiday Sing-Along and Downtown Stroll, Saturday, Dec. 3, with KUT 90.5, KUTX 98.9 and the Downtown Austin Alliance. Don't forget your rain boots and umbrellas, it's gonna get wet!

This free all-ages event begins at 6 p.m. on the south steps of the Capitol with with the crowd in singing songs of the season. Rusty on the lyrics? We’ll be passing out free commemorative songbooks.

A few minutes before 7 p.m. we’ll count down to the lighting of the Capitol tree, followed by a downtown stroll on Congress Avenue where shops, restaurants, galleries and museums will be open late and feature special activities, such as photos with Santa, live music and more.

Support members of our community by bringing non-perishable food or cash donations to the Capitol Christmas tree for the Central Texas Food Bank.

The Holiday Sing-Along & Downtown Stroll attracts a large crowd each year, so consider riding your bike or using public transportation. If you do drive, there are plenty of parking options, including garage and metered parking.
