Chip and Joanna Gaines's Spring at the Silos has officially been cancelled. The annual event, which was expected to draw thousands of people to Waco, Texas this weekend, was called off on Wednesday because of the novel coronavirus outbreak.
Magnolia released the following statement online:
"The health and safety of our attendees and employees is our top priority. Magnolia has been evaluating the rapid evolution of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation in the last 24 hours as new information has become available. After careful consideration, Magnolia has made the decision to cancel our Spring at the Silos 2020 event.
We are devastated to share this news with you, and we apologize for the inconvenience this may cause in your travel plans. We’re grateful for our incredible lineup of vendors and performers who have been gracious and patient with us during this time.
Chip addressed the cancellation on social media, explaining that it was an "extremely tough decision." He also announced that he and Joanna will be reimbursing "up to $1K in travel and hotel expenses" to their vendors. All ticketholders for Spring at the Silos will be issued full refunds.
While the event is cancelled, its host location—Magnolia Market at the Silos—will remain open, in addition to the Silos Baking Co., Magnolia Table, Magnolia Press and Little Shop on Bosque.
