Celebrate the holidays at the Alamo! Join us after hours to walk the beautiful Alamo grounds, decorated with festive lights throughout that illuminate the gardens, and of course, see the Christmas tree in Alamo Plaza.

In addition to the site's majestic trees wrapped with breathtaking lights this holiday season, the Alamo gardens will feature the larger-than-life light-decorated figures of Alamo Defenders and a few other surprises!

On November 25, December 10, and December 17, this special after-hours experience will also include live performances, presentation from local artists, and holiday food and drinks available for purchase.

This year's Alamo Lights are possible because of generous sponsorships from CPS Energy, Edouard Foundation, and Silver Eagle Beverages.

Reserve your tickets in advance to ensure best choice of dates. Tickets are available at a discount for Friends of the Alamo members. Not a member? Join today!

We also invite you to honor or remember a loved one with a luminaria at the Alamo. Luminarias will be displayed around the green lawn in front of Alamo Church from Friday, December 23 through Monday, December 26 during our Lights of Tribute event and tributes are listed on our website. Lights of Tribute is now closed for additional tributes in 2022.
