New this Season at Silo Park:
Kids are a huge part of the Silo Park community, so it’s pretty important there are activities just for them... and to give Mums and Dads a bit of down-time. Silo Stories is a Sunday afternoon activity for the littlies (and not-so-little) to sit back and relax, while listening to stories being read by various well-known local personalities.
Silo Park’s always been about getting together and getting involved, and there’s no better way than a good ol’ singing session with a couple of thousand people. Singing contemporary classics, with lyrics projected on the silo, it’s Auckland’s biggest choir - with voices travelling from the Shore to Howick, over the Waitaks and down to Manurewa.
Silo Crafty Zone
The Silo Crafty Zone is popping up at Silo Park every Saturday from midday. Nestled in amongst the Silo Markets, it's a family-friendly space where anyone can sit and draw, colour, craft and create. On special occasions the Silo Crafty Zone will host interesting workshops, run by talented people from around New Zealand.
Silo Produce Market (coming soon)
An exciting addition this year, the Sunday morning Silo Produce Markets will feature fruit and veg, coffee, baked goods, flowers and plants. A market for visitors and inner-city inhabitants that will be easy and accessible. With an authentic, fresh is best ethos, you’ll be supporting local owner-operators and growers, while getting your 5+ a day.
The Auckland City Mission Christmas Forest
Throughout December, Silo Park will once again be helping to support and raise much-needed funds for the Auckland City Mission. Silo 6 will transform into a magical Christmas Tree forest from 9 December, with wish ribbons for the trees. Make a donation, and help those less fortunate this Christmas by bringing along new, unwrapped gifts.
Friday 9, 16 and 23 December: 5pm - 9pm
Saturday 10 and 17 December: 12 - 6pm
Sunday 11 and 19 December: 12 - 6pm
