Make the Most of Summer at Silo Park This February

Make the Most of Summer at Silo Park This February

It’s been an incredible summer down at Silo Park, and it’s far from over. Expect February to continue in full steam with an ever-changing, dynamic programme to suit the taste buds of Aucklanders and those visiting.

Coming up in February the ever-popular Silo Cinema continues with a range of awesome movies, Silo Social offers free fully-licensed dance classes every Sunday afternoon, Silo Sessions is back with even more great local artists, and the Silo Markets return with a curated plethora of treats for a waterfront weekend in Auckland.

As the long summer days roll on, Silo Cinema continues with a great selection of films. Cosy up with a blanket as the sun goes down, grab a bite from one of the many awesome local vendors and settle in to a free open-air screening of the following movies: Mt. Zion (PG; 8th February), The Princess Bride (PG; 14th February - Valentine’s Day), Some Like It Hot (PG; 21st February - in collaboration with Auckland Pride Festival) and This is Spinal Tap (28th February).

Summer is all about having fun and enjoying the outdoors (with a cold beverage close to hand) - and this February the Silo Social is the ideal place to do it. Every Sunday afternoon Silo Park will play host to dance classes from professional instructors teaching line dancing, swing and everything in between. Sound scary? Fear not, it’s a relaxed, fun vibe -- enjoy some great food and drink from the fully licensed Silo Markets, then have a go or just smile from the sidelines!

As for the Silo Markets -- February brings in a series of specially curated market events for the obsessive in everyone. Saturday 1st February will see a unique vinyl market on offer, when local vinyl retailers and collectors will have allocated space to sell their crates!

This is the chance to find a rare treasure, spin a yarn with like-minded vinyl enthusiasts and wax lyrical about your wax. Vinyl specialists will be DJing the event from stock on-site at the market.

Saturday 15th February will see the Silo Pets Market in all its furry glory. This is a market to celebrate the other members of the family, our dogs/cats/ferrets/turtles. Featuring stalls for pets like grooming, gourmet treats, accessories and training. Bring your pet along and spoil them silly!

From the heart of Brazil to the cultured shores of Auckland, a hearty time will be had by down at the vibrant afternoon event Rice & Beans. With a feast for the eyes, dancing feet and more, this sensational event will be held on Saturday, 22nd February. Brought to you by Silo Sessions, it features an eclectic mix of music, culture, art and food.

Lead by Auckland’s favourite Brazilian Bobby Brazuka, the Mucho Aroha Music Showcase will feature a piping hot range of local and international DJs: Tamenpi (Rio de Janeiro), PG (Sao Paulo), Luiz Valente (Belo Horizonte), Latinaotearoa, Dubhead, Cian, Brazilian Divas, and AK Samba.

Au Capoeira NZ - a branch of the Au Capoeira school in Brazil -- will be performing in the grass at 2pm; a spectacle not to be missed. For the sporting sorts in your family, Auckland Futsal will be organising a fun football competition for kids and parents alike.

Make summer in Auckland count this year with Silo Park, the centre of community and cultural activities, celebrating our beautiful waterfront and diverse population with good vibes and great times.

Silo Park community activity is brought to you by Council organisation Waterfront Auckland as part of the ongoing revitalisation and activation of Wynyard Quarter and the central city waterfront.
