Nestled at the bottom of Wynyard Quarter, under the silos with a perfect view of the Auckland harbour, Silo Park returns
for a summer of good times between 21 December and 31 March.
Silo Park Event Manager, John Sutton, says Silo Park has become a staple of the Auckland summer, and he’s stoked to get
the show back on the road.
“We’re hyped to bring back Summer at Silo Park for its eighth season! Each year keeps getting better, and that’s thanks
to the people who come wide and far to enjoy the space with us.
“This year we have a strong focus on bringing people from all across Auckland to Silo Park. We have community groups
from east to west, and north to south, joining us for an array of workshops and performances which we know everyone will
really enjoy,” he says.
Each weekend starts on Friday afternoon at 5 pm with the Silo Bar and an abundance of food trucks, making Silo Park the
perfect place to wind down after a long week. With a full tummy, you and your friends or whānau can settle in to watch
the Friday night film, projected on Silo 7 from 9 pm.
Every Saturday and Sunday features bespoke events with a rotation of DJs, community performances and workshops galore.
The Silo Summer calendar kicks off on 21 December with three-days of Christmas celebrations including the People’s
Choice film (A Wonderful Life, Gremlins, Home Alone or Love Actually), Christmas activities including classic kiwi
games, workshops and of course, Santa!
Silo Cinema features a collection of films even the biggest movie buffs will get excited about. From December to
February, there are blockbusters (Solo: A Star Wars Story, The Incredibles 2, Black Panther), classics (The Blues
Brothers, Whale Rider, Jurassic Park, The Princess Bride) and film festival favourites (Shoplifters and Isle of Dogs).
March's movies will be announced at the end of January.
As always, proceeds from popcorn sales at Silo Cinema are donated to The Auckland City Mission.
Other highlights in the summer calendar include “World on the Street” which has grown to a four-weekend feature. A
celebration of Māori and Pasifika culture launches the series on 16 February. Africa, Latin America and East and South
East Asia themed events will follow on consecutive weekends. Each event will feature gourmet food trucks from the region
along with tailored music and entertainment.
Ice Cream Sundae is returning after a huge inaugural launch. With over 10,000 people attending last year, this year is
set to be bigger and better than ever with more scoops to try, more activities and more fun!
Silo Park has become synonymous with great food trucks, and this year’s programme is no different with more than 30
locally owned food trucks rotating throughout the summer. Each weekend will feature a different assortment to ensure
your taste buds are always tantalised.

A special thank you to Panuku Development Auckland for making it all possible.
