December in the District

Austin's sparkly 2ND Street District hosts its annual holiday window walk and launches stamped passports for local shopping all month long.

You put up your holiday decorations the first time the temperature dropped below 60. 

We're all ready to immerse ourselves in the holiday spirit. Making it a celebratory cinch comes the annual month-long December in the District festivites in 2ND Street District. Stop for sips and eats along the way and stroll the streets to ooh and ahh over the darling displays on the Holiday Window Walk, details below. Get your mittens on the brand new holiday passport to use while shopping local for all the gifts on your list, collecting “stamps” along the way to make you grand-prize-eligible for a coveted New Year’s Eve Downtown Austin staycation, including a two-night stay at The W Hotel, spa treatments from AWAY Spa, a gift certificate to dine at TRACE and a backstage tour of ACL Live.

It's beginning to look a lot like gift-mas. 

Don't miss the 10th Annual Holiday Window Walk at 2ND Street District. St. Edward’s University students have activated their imaginations and design skills to transform windows throughout the shopping district. Stroll the sidewalks and cast your vote through Dec 16 for your favorite magical window art installations at stores including Luxe Apothetique, Sneaker Politics, CRÚ, Austin Rocks, Bonobos and Orangetheory Fitness. The winner will receive scholarship funds plus your vote enters you to win a $250 Visa gift card so you can check your list twice.
