Big Truck Theater
Taylor is an incredibly vibrant and unique small village. Located eight minutes south of Oxford, Taylor has long been known for its family-oriented lifestyle and, of course, the artists. Over twenty-five years ago several artists located in Taylor and one by one others have followed. Today, dozens of artists live in the downtown Taylor area. Painters, sculptors, potters, photographers, woodworkers, furniture makers, and writers give Taylor its unique flavor.
Taylor may be best known for Taylor Grocery, the world-famous catfish restaurant. Featured in dozens of publications over the past ten years, Taylor Grocery offers the best fried catfish and down home atmosphere you can find anywhere. Live music and great food Friday-Sunday nights sometimes creates a two hour wait to get in the door. In 2006 the "Big Truck Theater" opened to the public. Somebody called it a cross between the Bluebird Cafe and the old Louisiana Hay Ride. Big Truck offers four hours of live music in an old barn, performed on the back of an old flat bed truck right in the heart of downtown Taylor. Add in two art galleries, an antiques outlet, and Taylor offers something for everyone.
The arts play an integral role in the concept of the Plein Air neighborhood. We celebrate the arts. We believe the arts make life better, more rich, and create lasting memories. Art lessons, events, lectures and showings will be plentiful at Plein Air. Plans call for an artist-in-residence rotating between painters, photographers, potters, and woodworkers. Plein Air is the neighborhood for artists and those who love the arts.
