Ron Fleming, long time member of the Christian County Fair Board announced today that the Fair Board would be picking up the extremely popular Barbeque Blues and Cruise Festival that was previously hosted by the Taylorville Main Street Organization. The 1 day festival features barbeque cook offs as well as a car show, 5K run, bands and much more.
Fleming stated that it was the hope of the fair board to continue the tradition that was started by Taylorville Main Street by keeping all the activities that previously made the event so popular. The only change planned at this time is the addition of more food vendors so attendees could have more options for dining. The tentative date for this year’s Barbeque Blues and Cruise Festival is set for July 27. The Fair Board invites everyone to mark their calendars and make sure to attend this great annual event in Taylorville.
