Friday, June 4th, 2010

The Taylorville Main Street Association is presenting a number of great activities here in Taylorville, less than 30 miles southeast of Springfield, Illinois. Come check out Barbecue, Blues & Cruise on June 4th & 5th at the Christian County Fairgrounds. Friday evening (no admission charge) from 5 to 10 PM “Talk to the BBQ Pros” and enjoy the Michelle Merker Memorial Concert.  Saturday ($5 admission)  From 10 am until 10:00 pm folks will be engaged in a Kansas City Bar-B-Q cook off, an Iron Chef competition and a Backyard grillers competition. While some folks cook and others taste, still others will be enjoying fantastic blues music from Big Babe Martin and the Chump Change Blues Band and The Manhattan Project.  

Start your day with a trip to the Farmer’s Market on the east side of Taylorville Square and pack a picnic, or enjoy good food from local vendors, and plan to make a day of it.  Also on the Square will be “Art On the Square”, a juried art fair which features beautiful paintings and sculpture and jewelry.

As if cook-offs and blues music aren’t enough, there will also be a Car and Bike Cruise and Show. This is guaranteed to be fun for vehicle aficionados of all ages. Taylorville is a perfect spot for Illinois Weekend Getaways. Come stay with us at our Central Illinois bed and breakfast and enjoy the Taylorville Main Street Association’s BBQ, Blues and Cruise on June 4th & 5th.
