In the Heart of The Blackland Prairie
The Main Street Program is a downtown revitalization within the context of historical preservation. The Taylor Main Street Programs support the redevelopment of the downtown area through historical preservation, education, economic development and heritage tourism.
We envision a culturally diverse and economically viable downtown which attracts both Taylor citizens and visitors to its unique mix of historic buildings, shops, restaurants, services and old town atmosphere.
Every spring, Taylor Main Street hosts the Taylor Zest Fest (formerly Taylor's Bloomin' Fest) on the first weekend in May. The festival is held in the heart of downtown and features horticultural speakers and demonstrations, arts and crafts vendors, food booths, children's activities and live entertainment. For more information on this event or any of the Main Street activities contact Main Street Manager Deby Lannen.
