McKinney’s quaint but bustling historic downtown will be extra busy when 150 artists from Texas and beyond set up shop in the streets for an arty block party. Support your neighbors by visiting the Local Artist Village and Student Art Tent. There’ll be hands-on activities for children in the Kids Creation Station and dancers, musicians and other performers on the entertainment stage. Visit the Trinity Falls Texas Wine Garden to taste vino from Texas wineries, including McKinney’s Landon Winery and Lone Star Wine Cellars. For $20, receive a souvenir glass and 10 tasting tickets. Or purchase wine by the glass for $5 to $10 apiece. There’ll also be beer and food vendors.
The festival features live music on two stages, kids creation station, wine garden and wine tasting, craft beer and festival foods.
