Christmas at the Silos: Write your wish lists and grab your camera—Santa will be at the Silos every Friday and Saturday from November 25–December 23. Plus, mark your calendar for December 7 and join us for A Very Merry Evening at the Silos. We’ll have performances by local musical groups, photos with Santa, gift shopping, and more! Get details.
Market transformation: Every season, our incredible visual display team transforms the Market and the grounds to reflect a theme we’ve chosen to press into. This winter, we’re taking up presence, choosing to see the wonder in the here & now. Come see Magnolia made over for the holidays!

Imagine if all the worn-out, untrue, painful chapters of our lives started to quiet, and the beautiful, unique pieces of who we are were to rise.
