Step into your lederhosen and refresh your schuhplattler dance moves for McKinney’s 10-year Oktoberfest celebration in Downtown McKinney Sept. 22, 23 and 24 presented by the City of McKinney and McKinney Main Street. This three-day event is a family favorite, offering authentic German food and drinks, entertainment, children’s activities and fun. Patrons will feel like they are right in the middle of Munich and enjoy authentic German fare like bier, brats, strudel, pretzels and live music.

Festival-goers can kick off the weekend by participating in the Oktoberfest march and view the brew tapping where the first keg of McKinney-brewed beer will be tapped by hammering the bronze spout into a 200-year-old keg. Authentic German music performances by bands such as Brave Combo, Alpine Village Band and STV Almrausch will take place on two stages as part of opening day festivities on Friday. Each night, stop, quake and shake for Texas’ largest chicken dance during “Der Ententanz” (The Duck Dance) and celebrate with a drink.
