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.

    I am sorry I couldn't make it to your spring Silobration. I live in Farmington, NM and have been a Fixer Upper fan for some time. I gave been teasing my husband about moving to Waco, TX just so we could Chip & Joanna to "fix it up* for us. The move to Texas is probably not going to happen but I will be in Seminole and San Antonio in July and just may run on up to Waco just for kicks. Would love to check out your "Silo". So glad to have the rumors, about Joanna leaving Fixer Upper, put to rest. Love you guys! Prayers for a good resolution of Chip's lawsuit. Can't wait for the new season to start. Betty Asmus

    Will you be having this event again next year in 2018? If so, does it run just on a weekend or do you run it for a week? This will be my fourth trip to the silos from the Phoenix area and I want to bring some girlfriends with me next time. Road trip with the girls and the hubby is driving. He's just like one of us girls! We Love The Silos

    Joanna and two have helped my marriage and home ownership. I have watched your family grow up and , u two as a relaxing place to go with me and my 2 dogs and cat.... what will I do without the two of you. How will Chip get his demo-days: thrills and how will you get to explore your fabulous design challenges.? Also...How can you leave people like me without you and your family that we have watched grow up, including birthing baby goats.? you were totally one of my faves.....!

    My comment is more focused on when you find that you have a slab leak and need the input of a professional contractor. Do you know anyone who could let us know what to expect for repair(s), etc.? All I can think of is ... this is going to be VERY expensive.
