Silobration is Magnolia’s annual celebration featuring a free vendor fair, food trucks, daytime activities, and two after-hours concerts featuring Drew Holcomb and Johnnyswim on the Silos grounds. The after-hours concerts on Friday and Saturday are the only Silobration events that will require a ticket. This year’s Silobration will take place October 18-20.
We can’t wait to celebrate Magnolia’s fourth annual Silobration with you!
Vendors from across the country will be lining the streets surrounding the Silos to set up shop and share their products with you! The Vendor Fair will be open Thursday to Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily. The Vendor Fair will be a free event, no tickets needed. Keep checking back here for additional daytime activities and a complete list of Silobration vendors, which will be added as we get closer to the weekend.
On October 19th and 20th we will be closing the grounds at 5:00 p.m. to prepare for a nighttime concert event featuring Drew Holcomb and Johnnyswim, with a special appearance by Chip and Jo! This concert is the only activity that will require a ticket all weekend long. Concert ticket holders will be able to re-enter the grounds for the event beginning at 6:00 p.m., and the concert and program will begin at 7:00 p.m.

We recommend all guests dress comfortably. October temperatures vary from year to year in Texas, so be sure to check the weather forecast for Waco as you pack your bags.
Whether you’re planning to spend the night or stay for the weekend, we suggest booking a hotel room as soon as possible, as many of the surrounding hotels tend to fill up quickly. You can find a full list of nearby hotels here.
Yes! However, Waco Regional Airport is relatively small and typically requires a connecting flight from a major nearby airport like DFW or Austin-Bergstrom. It’s not uncommon to fly into Dallas or Austin, rent a car, and make the drive, either. Waco is roughly a 90-minute drive from either city.
The safety of our guests, employees and vendors is our number one priority. All events will take place rain or shine unless conditions are deemed unsafe.
You can pick up your tickets on Friday (10/19) and Saturday (10/20) between the hours of 9:00am – 8:00pm at the guest services tent.
