Solon Beef Days celebrate its 40th Anniversary

The four groups that started Beef Days were the Solon Optimist Club, Solon Fire Department, Solon American Legion and the Solon Jaycees. It is named after Beef, as the Johnson County Cattlemen’s Association came in and cooked the steaks served at the event the first few years.
