Spring at the Silos is one of our favorite events of the year – and it’s made special by all of the vendors, small businesses, and musicians who come out every year and pour so much thought, time, and energy into making it such a unique experience for our guests. Chip and I are deeply saddened that this year’s event won’t go on as we’d hoped and are just so sorry that the decision to cancel had to be made. For the next three days we’re going to be highlighting each of the amazing artisans and shop owners who make this event so special on our blog and stories – with the hope of making it easy for you to see their product and shop their websites directly.

“Spring at The Silos” is an annual event at the Gaines’ Magnolia property in Waco, Texas. The home improvement duo’s decision comes from the preventative measures concerning the spread of the coronavirus.

In addition to local vendors, the events hosts performers, like the popular Christian singer Ben Rector, among others.

Still, the Gaines’s are doing all they can to honor their ticket-buyers and reimbursing them.

The stories we’ve heard this week from all of you and our #SpringattheSilos vendors have left us in awe of the kindness that’s been shared. ⠀ ⠀ So many beautiful reminders that when hard things happen and we choose to look up, it helps us see the opportunities we may not have before — to give or receive a helping hand, an encouraging message, or a simple smile. When we lift our heads, quiet the chaos, and look around us, we can see the good, feel the good, and then be the good for someone else. ⠀ Thank you to everyone who has shown us grace this week and supported our amazing vendors. Kindness is the simplest yet most extravagant gift, and it has the power to turn a difficult circumstance into a beautiful opportunity.⠀ ⠀ As things feel unsettled and unsure in our world today, we want to lean into what we know to be true: We believe in human kindness, knowing we are made better when we work together. #makekindnessloud (For our full vendor list go to magnolia.com/blog or my vendor fair highlight)
