Free Daytime Events

Free Daytime Events

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.

Nighttime Concert​

featuring Phil Wickham, Shane & Shane and Micah Tyler

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​.

Frequently Asked Questions


Do I need concert tickets to enter the Silos Grounds during normal business hours?

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).

Do I need concert tickets to enter the Silos Grounds Friday and Saturday nights during the concert?

Yes, for the after hours concert, tickets will be required.

Will tickets be available for purchase at the door the night of the concert?

We do not anticipate concert tickets being available for purchase at the door.

Can I bring food and/or drinks onto the Silos grounds?

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.

In the event of inclement weather, can I bring an umbrella?

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.

What will the weather be like? How should I dress?

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!

I’m planning to stay the night. Do you suggest a place to stay?

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.

Does Waco have an airport?

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.

What else should we do while we’re in town?

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.

What should I expect with parking?

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. Note that a few of our neighbors have parking lots available, but they may charge. The lots that charge to park are not affiliated with Magnolia.

Are there handicapped parking spots available at the Silos?

Yes, we are equipped to facilitate handicapped parking during the event.

What time will the after hours concert event end?

The event will end at 10 o’clock p.m.

What is the concert ticket refund policy?

We will be unable to offer refunds for concert tickets purchased. You may, however, transfer your tickets to a family member or a friend.

If I’m planning to go to the concert, do my kids need tickets?

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.

Will the store be open after hours at the concert event?

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.

Will the daytime and nighttime events happen rain or shine?

Unless the weather is considered dangerous to our guests, we will continue with all scheduled events rain or shine.

Should we bring lawn chairs? Are strollers allowed?

We will not allow lawnchairs onto the Silos grounds. The after hours concert will be a standing event, but picnic tables will be available if guests need to sit down. Wheelchairs and strollers will be allowed onto the Silos grounds at all times, and ramps and elevators will be accessible to all who need them.
