The annual Holiday Sing-Along & Downtown Stroll presented by Downtown Austin Alliance, KUT 90.5, and KUTX 98.9 is a free, family-friendly event that celebrates the arrival of the holiday season and the joy it brings. The event features live entertainment, photos with Santa, a special holiday edition of the SFC Farmers' Market, and much more! Check out the schedule of activities below. 
5:00 - 6:00pm: Come early for live music, shopping at the SFC Farmers’ Market, and photos with Santa in an Airstream Trailer.
6:00 - 7:00pm: The singalong begins at 6:00pm when crowds gather on the south steps of the Capitol to sing songs of the season, led by KUTX 98.9 music hosts John Aielli and Elizabeth McQueen. As the clock strikes 7 p.m., the countdown to the lighting of the Capitol tree begins. Once lit, the tree features a programmed light show at the top and bottom of every hour set to holiday songs of local Austin musicians.
7:00 - 9:00pm: Congress Ave will be abuzz with holiday cheer during the Downtown Stroll. Enjoy live music from the Invincible Czars, Huck Johnson and the Jackknives, and Austin Children's Choir. Other fun activities include a special holiday farmers’ market by the Sustainable Food Center, photos with Santa, a performance of Circus Chickendog’s The Mutt-Cracker (SWEET!) and more!
