Mrs. Bridgewater’s Chicken Extravaganza, a celebration of all that is chicken, is set for Saturday, May 17, in the little town of Dixon Springs.
The festival, which showcases chickens, is an annual event sponsored by the Dixon Springs Preservation Association and honors one of the town’s most prestigious citizens, Mrs. Nannie Burford Bridgewater who was a world renowned breeder of Buff Orpington chickens.
This year, in addition to a chicken show and judging, a barbecue lunch, antiques, a quilt show, and live music, there will be booths for local artists and craftsmen.
If you are a talented area artist or craftsperson, and would like to rent space for the day’s events, the Extravaganza’s organizers are looking for you! Contact booth coordinators John Oliver at 633-4717 or Loretta Ewing at 688-8853.
