Spring at the Silos Recap

April 20, 2017

At last year’s Silobration, we tried something a little different and added a vendor fair to the list of activities to spotlight small businesses from all over the country. I loved this part of the Silobration so much, that I decided to host another annual event that was all about our vendor artisans—Spring at the Silos.

When we started planning for Spring at the Silos, I wanted to make sure we had a good variety of artisans from all over the country, so we invited just under 80 different groups to come set up all along the streets in front of the property. The vendor fair was my favorite part about this event, and made for a unique shopping experience for all of our visitors.

To celebrate spring, we also hosted activities like morning yoga on the lawn, grounds tours and live music. I loved seeing everyone finally get to enjoy our finished grounds. Last spring we were still figuring out how to put the finishing touches on details like seating and landscaping, so it was good to finally see the fruits of hard work.

See some of my favorite highlights from this year’s Spring at the Silos below!

Our 75 vendors each brought something unique to add to the event—from handmade cutting boards to kids toys and even jewelry, fresh flowers and paper goods—we had a little bit of everything. These artisans brought so much energy and excitement to our grounds.

For those of you who made the trip to Waco to join us for Spring at the Silos, I hope you had fun celebrating spring with us. Be sure to comment below if you made it out to the event and tell me where you came from! And thank you again to the city of Waco, our vendors and the Magnolia staff for all of your hard work making this happen.
