Their annual light show is a giveback to the community, now in its 10th year and features millions of LED lights and live entertainment and is free to the public.


The 10th Annual Joyous Light Show has become a Holiday institution. Yet Austin keeps growing and there seems to be no end in site to all the new arrivals, from millenials to tech industry workers, and boomers relocating to this warm and thriving cultural center. Mozart’s aim was multifold. Increase visibility and awareness amongst millenials, build in-store traffic, web visitors and sales while garnering media impressions throughout the duration of the show which ran from Nov. 21, 2019 through Jan. 5, 2020

Social media participation reached record highs with millions of views and over 6K shares. Attendance on-site exceeded all previous years, with an overwhelming three quarters of a million visitors, many of whom were newcomers to Austin or visitors from abroad.
