Taylor ISD Theater Performances
There are many different theater performances throughout the year at theaters in Taylor. Go to taylorplaymakers.com to see a list of upcoming shows and get your tickets. The Taylor ISD puts on two theater performances per school year– one in the spring and one in the fall.
Since 1950, the Taylor Rodeo Association has proudly brought to you the Taylor Annual Rodeo in the hometown of Bill Pickett. The crowds that come to this yearly event have grown because of the enthusiasm and the excitement– but most of all for the entertainment they receive. Over the years the Taylor Annual Rodeo has become the big fish in a small pond. It is one of the biggest and best small-town rodeos anywhere.
