Festival History/How Did This Happen?
More than five years ago, the Chamber and the Town of Taylorsville put their heads together and came up with a super idea for a local annual festival. We all know that eating is BIG, BBQ is BIG, and fun is BIG. We went with it!
After hard work and lots of planning by the Chamber and the Town, plus the help of a strong faithful sponsor B95 ( a great local radio station), and the gracious help of lots of local sponsors, our first festival was born. It seems like only yesterday, and now our Fourth Annual Grillin’ n Chillin’ became a reality!
There’s something for everyone at Grillin’ n Chillin’ BBQ Fest. We have competition open to BBQ teams, we have delicious food as a result of this competition (everyone loves it) , plus all the food vendors’ unique and tasty goods. We have everything from barbecue to fried oreos, proving the theory that one can fry just about anything!
By late afternoon, we settle down and get comfortable. This year we had some awesome tunes from Sammy Kershaw, plus other entertainment! We are graciously supported by local and area merchants, industries, and financial institutions, and our yearly celebration is growing!
