Silo Park has been a delivering a regular range of special cinematic, music and community events each week of summer.
Silo Park has become an Auckland summer regular, delivering a range of special cinematic, music and community events every Friday and Saturday, and the recently added Silo Social on Sundays. The Silo Night Markets kick off each weekend at 5:00pm on Friday’s, where visitors can grab dinner from an eclectic array of street food style stalls, browse a variety of pop-up clothing stores, get a bike service at T White Bikes, and toast the end of the week at the Silo Park Bar. Silo Markets also features weekly entertainment from local and international DJ’s.
Friday’s are also home to Auckland’s only regular open-air cinema, Silo Cinema – a fantastic outdoor film experience, where movies of all genres are projected onto the iconic Silo 7. Silo Park offers the ultimate weekend outing for all ages, inviting families and friends to grab a bite, pull up a beanbag and enjoy the show. Silo Cinema guests can also ‘Eat Popcorn for Charity’, with all of the profits from popcorn sales throughout the season going to a variety of charities, as chosen by the public.
The Silo Markets take place from 12pm–6pm every Saturday, offering a veritable mix of food stalls, vintage clothing, contemporary artists, street performers and more. On Saturday February 1, 2014 a special vinyl market will be held, where local vinyl retailers and collectors will be given a space to sell their wares.
Once a month during Summer, Silo Park plays host to some of New Zealand’s best musical talent at Silo Sessions – a series of free concerts, unique showcases and performances, curated by special guests, community groups and collectives.
