LIGHTS! INTERACTION! CAMERAS!
Mozart’s Christmas Light Show Goes Immersive This Year
NEW in 2017:
Visitors to Mozart’s Coffee Roasters’ annual Christmas light extravaganza will get a new immersive, interactive experience surrounded by more than one million LED lights in a show that will run every evening from November 17 through January 1 (except for Thanksgiving and Christmas day). Come with eager eyes and ears (there will be music, too). And bring your camera to get photos and videos that will light up your Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook pages.
Thousands of dazzling lights have been sculpted into giant iconic objects, custom-made in Greece, that evoke Austin’s culture and the Christmas season, including a dozen guitars, the State Capitol, and a tree filled with presents. Plus, an audio-activated wall of lights. Thousands of other lights will be imaginatively strung in the trees, facades and rooflines. All will be placed around Mozart’s lakeside deck.
For refreshment, Mozart’s acclaimed coffee and hot chocolate can be purchased inside the coffee house and at kiosks outdoors. Special holiday goodies from Mozart’s bakery will also be available.
NOTE—High Points of the Show/Timing:
The exhilarating highpoints of the show, super light-ups and live choral singing, will be spaced throughout the entire evening. Families can relax and arrive at any time to get their over-the-top dose of Christmas magic.
More than 20 choirs from local schools and community groups have been tapped this year to sing Christmas songs that range from traditional to “rock-the-deck” tunes.

Friday, November 17, 2017 – Monday, January 1, 2018 (except for Thanksgiving and Christmas day)
6:00 – 11:00 P.M. nightly
