McKinney: McKinney Oktoberfest 2012

September 28, 2012 (All day) to September 29, 2012 (All day)

McKinney Oktoberfest 2012 Historic Downtown McKinney Friday, Sept. 28: 4 p.m. – 11 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29: 10 a.m. – 11 p.m. McKinney Texas meets Bavaria as Oktoberfest comes to life in Historic Downtown McKinney. This family-friendly event kicks off on Friday, September 28 and will continue through Saturday, September 29. McKinney Main Street, supporting sponsors and the shops in downtown McKinney will host non-stop activities in the heart of our great city. It’s all to celebrate the popular tradition which began in Munich, Germany 200 years ago. Germans have a special word – Gemütlichkeit – suggesting a warm atmosphere of open and generous hospitality and that is how we will welcome families and friends during this 2-day event in Historic Downtown McKinney. Guests can enjoy fantastic German beer from local Brewery, Franconia, along with wine and all of the German cuisine that you would find if you were right in the middle Munich. The kiddos will have a ball at Oktoberfest with interactive activities and offerings including weenie-dog races, face painting, petting zoo and arts and crafts of all types. We invite you to join us for a fun, family-friendly event offering authentic German music, food and drink, traditional costumes, dancing, children’s activities, and much more.
