Help us celebrate the Christmas season by joining us at the Magnolia Silos December 9th and 10th for all-day family fun! We’ll have plenty of activities for visitors of all ages, including pictures with Santa, bakery treats, shopping and a nighttime concert featuring Shane and Shane, Phil Wickham and Micah Tyler!
Our daytime Christmas events will be free and open to the public on both December 9th and 10th. Come take your kids’ pictures with Santa! Plus grab a bite to eat at our Magnolia Silos food truck park—some of the very best local eats in Waco! The Magnolia Market, grounds, and food trucks will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. both of these days.
Concert tickets are available for $20 each. The grounds, Market and food trucks will reopen from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. for ticket holders, and the concert will begin at 7 p.m. During the concert event, your kids will have plenty to keep them busy with fun Christmas crafts, and there will be plenty extra time for shopping in the Market and grabbing a treat at our new bakery food truck!
We hope you’ll join us at our first ever Christmas event! We can’t wait to see Shane and Shane, Phil Wickham and Micah Tyler! If you can’t either, grab your tickets here.
No, you will not need concert tickets to enter our daytime events. Entry will be free of charge during the normal business hours (listed above).
Yes, for the after hours concert, tickets will be required.
We do not anticipate concert tickets being available for purchase at the door.
We ask that you do not bring outside food or drinks onto the Silos grounds. You may bring bottled water. Food trucks will be open for lunch and dinner.
During normal business hours umbrellas will be allowed. During the after hours concert, we ask that no one bring umbrellas into the venue, so that everyone can easily view the stage. We do suggest bringing ponchos and rain boots in case of inclement weather.
Dress very comfortably, and don’t forget your rain boots in the event of inclement weather. In Texas, December temperatures can range greatly. Be sure to check the weather forecast for Waco, Texas as you prepare for the concert!
If you’re planning to stay the weekend, we highly suggest booking a hotel room in advance, as hotels surrounding the Silos typically fill up quickly. The Hilton Waco, The Hotel Indigo and the Downtown-area Courtyard Marriot are all very close by. But any Waco-area hotel you find will be happy to give you an estimate as to how far they are from the Silos. Most will be less than ten minutes away.
Yes! Oftentimes flying into the Waco Regional Airport requires a connecting flight from another larger Texas airport, such as Dallas Fort Worth. Since Waco is central to Dallas and Austin, another option is to fly into DFW or Austin-Bergstrom and rent a car. Waco is approximately a 2 hour drive from both Austin and Dallas.
There are plenty of fun places to eat, shop, and explore while visiting Waco! For a guide to all that Waco has to offer, check out the Waco Convention & Visitors Bureau website.
The free Silo District Trolley will be the easiest way for you to get to and from the Silos. To learn where to park and for more information, click here. We do suggest you carpool if you are able.

Children, age 3 and under, will NOT be required to have a ticket to enter the after-hours concert. But, again, tickets will NOT be required for daytime activities.
Yes, the Market will reopen for concert guests to shop when the grounds re-open. You will be required to have a concert ticket to enter the Market after hours.
