Downtown Festival Shot.jpg
This festival is sponsored by the Main Street Program, a program which focuses on downtown revitalization within the context of historical preservation. The Taylor Main Street Program supports the redevelopment of the downtown area through historical preservation, education, economic development and heritage tourism.

This annual festival takes place every year:

  • Date: first weekend in May
  • Friday night: Street Dance 8:00-midnight
  • Saturday festival: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
  • Place: Taylor's Historic Downtown District

Kid Fest
The festival features plenty of fun activities for the kids including pony rides, petting zoo, face painting, inflatables and much more. Rope the Steer, join in the Stick Horse Rodeo or stop by the Chuck Wagon Camp and have your picture taken with a real Longhorn!

Arts & Crafts
Booths featuring arts and crafts, plants, baked goods and retail merchandise will all be available to provide a unique shopping experience for everyone.

Food
Look for a variety of food and drink so you can spend the day strolling through the festival. Funnel cakes, sausage wraps, and local favorites will make you hungry for more!  Take a moment to visit some of our downtown restaurants after the festival or on your next visit to Taylor. 

Entertainment
Friday night street dances promises lots of music, fun, and good times!  Dance starts at 8 pm and beer and wine are available.  On Saturday, there will be at least two stages featuring local and area talent to celebrate our community's diversity. Cultural and heritage music and song will be showcased throughout the day and into the early evening. No better way to spend the weekend!
