South Main Iron Director of Operations, Kris Estep, announced Mar. 18that Paris Steak Wars will be postponed to a later date in light of recent events regarding COVID-19.
The event is the first of its kind in downtown Paris including live bands, a steak cook-off, Paris Mobile Bar, on-site tattoo artist and more. In celebration of their second birthday, South Main Iron is presenting the event which will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Red River County.
“Of course we were hoping that COVID-19 wouldn’t have an impact on this event but we’re taking advice from government officials very seriously and the safety and health of our community are of utmost importance,” said Estep. “At this time, the event board has voted to postpone the event to a later date. As are many in our community, we are keeping up-to-date with the situation and will set a new date when appropriate.”
Estep added that he and the board appreciate the sponsors and teams who have raised their hands to make this an unforgettable experience for show-goers.
Sponsors include Quality Care ER, Kearney Electric, Paris Regional Medical Center, Liberty National Bank, ServPro of Paris, Paris Chevrolet Buick GMC, Emerson Autogate, Emerson Fence Company, BadgeCaps.com, Lonestar Ag Credit, Harrison Walker & Harper, Signature Care and Garner Street.

A local business is bringing an all-new event to downtown Paris, Texas this April featuring food, live music, drinks and fun for the family.
South Main Iron will celebrate their 2nd birthday with the first-ever Paris Steak Wars launching April 11 on Kaufman Street.
The event will feature 25 teams facing off to claim the title for Steak Champ in our community. Spaces are limited and those interested in competing are encouraged to lock in their spot as soon as possible.
This rare event is a prime opportunity to experience downtown Paris with hundreds of other show-goers taking advantage of quality bands, cold beverages, steak tastings, a food bar and trucks along with other activities being added daily.
“It’s hard to believe it’s already been two years since launching South Main Iron downtown,” said Director of Operations, Kris Estep. “There’s so much life in our community and this event will simply add to that. We’ll have 25 teams cooking up 25 steaks at each booth throughout the day. You could even say, ‘the steaks are high’ when it comes to bringing home the title.”
This year, the Boys and Girls Club of Red River Valley has been selected to benefit from the proceeds of the event. According to the event board, a new non-profit will be selected each year.
“The event is free to attend; however, one wrist-band purchase will get you access to taste steak from each team as well as the accompanying potato bar,” said Estep. “We’ll have Paris Mobile Bar, the Budlight Stage for live music and several other vendors featured throughout the day.”
This event is brought to you by South Main Iron and Steak Title Sponsor, Quality Care ER.
