Get ready for a sizzling experience as Visit Paris proudly announces the much-anticipated Texas BBQ Blowout, set to take place at the Love Civic Center on December 2.
This mouthwatering event promises a day filled with smoky flavors, lively entertainment, and friendly competition, all while supporting local education.
The festivities kick off on November 30 with a live concert featuring country music sensation Neal McCoy, with The Broken Spokes as the opening act.
Attendees can expect an unforgettable evening of music, setting the stage for a weekend full of excitement.
Tickets are available online (texasbbqblowout.com) or in person at the Lamar County Chamber of Commerce office.
On December 1, the Welcome to Paris Party will bring sponsors and cook-off teams together to share a meal and set the tone for the main event on December 2.
December 2 marks the Texas BBQ Blowout’s main event, where teams will go head-to-head in five meat categories, showcasing their culinary skills and creativity. Local schools will also join the fun in a school BBQ cook-off, competing in each meat category.
Attendees can purchase tickets to enter the BBQ Arena and try BBQ from every team in every category. Ticket holders will have the opportunity to cast their votes for their favorite BBQ creations and decide on the People’s Choice Award.
“This event is not just about BBQ; it’s about community, camaraderie, and supporting education,” says Paul Allen, President of the Lamar County Chamber of Commerce. “The Texas BBQ Blowout brings people together for a fantastic time while making a meaningful impact on the education foundations of our local schools. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.”
All proceeds from the event will be directed towards school scholarship foundations at North Lamar ISD, Paris ISD, Chisum ISD, Prairiland ISD, and Paris Junior College, contributing to the educational growth and development of our community’s future leaders.
