We have moved into the second weekend of Oktoberfest in the Big D, so hopefully you haven’t put your stein too far away. Here’s where to revel in the German tradition this weekend…

10th Annual McKinney Oktoberfest – Friday, Sept. 22 – Sunday, Sept. 23

“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.”

Happiest Hour – Sunday, Sept. 24 at 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

“Oktoberfest is coming to OHB! Join us for our third annual Oktoberfest party on September 23rd, from 12-6 p.m. We’ll have German music, German food by Kb Brats, German beer, lawn games, and more! Entry is free, and beer will be sold by the pint.

We’ll also be drinking for a cause, as this year we’ve teamed up with the AiRS Alliance in Reconstructive Surgery! A percentage of the day’s sales will benefit this non-profit. The AiRS Foundation’s mission is to raise awareness and funds for reconstructive surgery after a mastectomy for women who cannot afford it. Cheers!”

Please plan on arriving on-time for your seating, as not to inconvenience anyone with a ticket to a later seating.
