Silo Park is back! And kicking off this weekend at Auckland’s Wynyard Quarter

From 5pm tomorrow, Aucklanders can find everything they need to end the working week and crack into the weekend. Grab dinner from an eclectic array of street food style stalls, browse a variety of pop-up clothing stores, and toast the end of the week at the SILO PARK BAR.

Once fed and watered, visitors can grab a beanbag and settle in for Auckland’s only regular open-air cinema, SILO CINEMA; launching its season tomorrow night with 80’s comedy classic, ‘The Blues Brothers'.

Saturday is home to the SILO MARKETS, happening every week from 12pm to 6pm, and offering a veritable mix of food stalls, vintage clothing, contemporary artists, street performers and more. Once a month, Silo Park plays host to some of New Zealand’s best musical talent at SILO SESSIONS – the first edition taking place on Saturday 1 December with ‘Weird Together presents World Together’, curated by George FM’s Nick D.
