HOLIDAY SING-ALONG & DOWNTOWN STROLL

The annual Holiday Sing-Along & Downtown Stroll is a FREE, family-friendly event that celebrates the arrival of the holiday season and the joy it brings.

The evening starts at 6:00 p.m. when crowds gather on the south steps of the Capitol to sing the songs of the season during KUTX 98.9 “Eklektikos” host John Aielli’s Holiday Sing Along.

As the clock strikes 7 p.m., the countdown to the lighting of the Capitol tree begins, featuring a programmed light show at the top and bottom of every hour, set to holiday songs of local Austin musicians.

From 7 to 9 p.m. Congress Avenue will be abuzz with holiday cheer during the Downtown Stroll. Join us to hear live music and enjoy fun family-friendly activities! Shops, restaurants, galleries, and museums will also be open late and will feature special activities and offers.

If you can, please support fellow members of the community by bringing non-perishable food or cash donations to the Capitol Christmas tree for the Capital Area Food Bank.

One-of-a-Kind Trunk Show with Jamie Joseph Jewelry at Eliza Page

  • Eliza Page
Timeless and modern, elegant and understated, Jamie Joseph Jewelry collection is a showcase of exquisite rocks. An artisan and a designer, Jamie hand-selects and hand-facets each stone. Her Golden Joinery collection, featuring stones joined with 22k gold and signature diamond, is based on the Japanese art of Kintsugi, which is the art of repairing broken pottery with gold. It is thought that this technique makes the item more beautiful, rather than be considered broken, as the cracks are part of history. Shop dozens of items from this collection and her other one-of-a-kind designs at Eliza Page Oct 20-23. Shop during the trunk show weekend and be entered to win a ring!
