The Driskill will present the annual lighting of The Driskill tree, followed by a performance of holiday carols sung by the Austin Opera. They'll also play holiday music throughout the evening to pair with the festive holiday cocktails and treats that will be available in The Driskill Bar and 1886 Café & Bakery.

In our ever-changing world, the return of the holiday season brings a certain yearning for tradition. For The Driskill, this special time of year brings traditions celebrated by families for generations, the sound of seasonal string music throughout a lobby adorned with festive décor, a magnificent 16-foot tree, which serves as the backdrop to traditional afternoon teas, and the smell of freshly baked goods wafting from the kitchen. We look forward to another year of spreading holiday cheer with our community.
