This time of year counties all over America have their fairs. The purpose originally was to display prized crops and animals and to sell specially bred animal stock to others whose herds needed true bloodlines. Of course there evolved the fun aspect as well. The fun part is the rides, games, talent shows, demolition derbys, entertainment, food and more. Come to Taylorville, IL July 9, 2013 through Sunday, July 14, 2013 and enjoy the fun.

This week, guests at our Central Illinois Bed and Breakfast will be able to attend the Christian County Agricultural Fair, hosted at the fairgrounds from July 7 – 15. The Fair is a meeting place for people from all walks of life, especially folks who live and work miles from any city. For them, this is an opportunity to learn about new products and techniques, and to swap tales with people in the same line of work. For city-dwellers, this event provides a rare glimpse into American agricultural/rural life. How often do folks from Chicago or St. Louis get to watch bull riding and tractor pull competitions? This is a great opportunity to learn about where our food comes from. What makes a prize-winning pig prize-winning? What characteristics do people look for in their beef cattle and dairy cows? The livestock shows are fascinating when you consider these questions.
Our Taylorville Illinois Bed and Breakfast is the perfect place to stay while you attend or participate in the Christian County Agricultural Fair; we are located just twelve blocks away from the fairgrounds. Fill up on a tasty homemade breakfast before heading out for the day, and share your experiences during our social hour over complimentary wine, beer and cheese after you return. We look forward to seeing you at our Victorian Bed and Breakfast in Central Illinois.
