Barbecue and cookoff enthusiasts enjoy the annual National Championship Barbecue Cookoff and Parade in October and the John A. Lomax Cowboy Music Gathering and Chuck Wagon Cook-off in April. The Chamber of Commerce hosts annual festivals, the Heart of  Texas Barbecue Cookoff, the Bosque County Go Texan Barbecue Cookoff, concerts on the Courthouse Square and finishes the year with it's Annual Christmas activities and parade. 

Those who enjoy antique tractors are treated on the second Saturday in June to the Duncan Seawright Memorial Tractor Show and Pull and on the fourth Saturday in October to the Bosque Bottoms Tractor Show and Pull.  Both are held in conjunction with barbecue cookoffs.

Meridian, population approximately 1,539, is located at the junction of Highways 6, 22, 144 & 174 and approximately 50 miles northwest of Waco, Texas and 90 miles southwest of Dallas/Fort Worth. 

Meridian is an ideal location for the many thriving businesses as well as a commercial center for farming and ranching.  A growing city, Meridian has an active Economic Development Corporation and Chamber of Commerce.  As the I-35 commercial corridor widens and the Metroplex continues to move southward, Meridian offers opportunities for ground-floor business startups in retail and industrial and opportunities to purchase existing businesses.
