Luminations the Wildflower Center

Saturday and Sunday, December 14 and 15
6 p.m. to 9 p.m. 
Free Admission with two canned food items

An Austin holiday tradition. We invite you to enjoy our lighted gardens, filled with thousands of luminarias and twinkle lights. Admission is free with two canned food items for the Capital Area Food Bank. Find their most requested items here: http://www.austinfoodbank.org/how-to-help/donate-food.html 

In addition to the beautiful holiday lighting, we will have hot chocolate and yummy food and drinks for sale, plus children's activities and numerous musical acts throughout both evenings from local performers and area schools. 

Kids can get a hug from Frosty the Snowman and make crafts in the Visitors Gallery.

Enjoy food and beverages from our Café and visit our decorated Christmas trees in the McDermott Learning Center. Visit our Gift Store and sample Texas Yaupon Tea or enjoy book signings by local authors and illustrators. We hope to see you there!
