Two Seatings - 2:00PM brunch & 6:30PM dinner

Four Seasons Hotel

Twilight on the Trail is The Trail Conservancy’s biggest fundraiser of the year. As one of Austin’s favorite galas, this year we will celebrate Arts + Culture. We encourage guests to put their a creative artistic spin on the usual gala attire “cocktail on top and Trail on the bottom.” 

This year, we will have two seatings – each identical in program and length – a Pre-Twilight Brunch seating and a Twilight Dinner seating. 

Table sponsorships and tickets are opening soon, so lace up your party shoes and secure your tickets today.

Cocktail on Top. Trail on Bottom.
