Drawing on the colorful tradition that began in Munich, Germany in 1810, McKinney’s Oktoberfest represents many things to many people. This family-friendly event offers a celebration of tradition and the cultural contributions of German immigrants who settled in Texas. Enjoy authentic German music, food
and drink, traditional costumes, dancing, and children’s activities.
Germans have a special word – Gemütlichkeit – suggesting a warm atmosphere of open and generous hospitality, and with that heartfelt welcome, we greet over 50,000 guests to our Historic Downtown. McKinney’s 168 year-old square offers vibrant specialty shops and restaurants.
McKinney Oktoberfest 2017 celebrates its 10th anniversary during the three-day event - September 22, 23 & 24! Opening ceremonies begin Friday evening, and the event continues through Sunday afternoon with more food, entertainment and attractions for the entire family.
