KUT & KUTX Holiday Sing-Along

Kick off the holiday season with KUT and KUTX at our annual Sing-Along, capped off by the countdown to the Tree Lighting and followed by the Downtown Austin Alliance’s Holiday Stroll.

At 6 p.m., KUTX 98.9 music hosts John Aielli and Elizabeth McQueen will lead us in signing carols on the south steps of the Capitol. Rusty on the lyrics to “The Twelve Days of Christmas”? We’ve got you covered with complimentary commemorative songbooks.

At 7 p.m., we’ll countdown to the lighting of the downtown holiday tree at 11th St. and Congress Ave. After the tree lighting, stroll Congress Avenue between 9th and 11th streets for shopping, and free live music and entertainment for all ages.
