Greetings, Daytrippers!

We invite you to check out our website to help you plan your day trip - or better yet, make it a weekend! - to McKinney to celebrate the city's 15th annual Oktoberfest celebration Sept. 23-25! At the bottom of this page, you'll find dining and attractions listings, information about other upcoming events taking place in McKinney, and links to our hotels as well as an online trip planner. 

We know you'll have as much fun at McKinney's Oktoberfest as we do! The festivities kick off with the always-popular keg tagging on Friday evening when you have a chance to score one of the freshly-filled souvenir beer steins. Enjoy the dancing, music, food, and beer night Friday, with the fun continuing Saturday and Sunday. Kids will enjoy the carnival and midway plus other games and activities! For FAQs about McKinney's Oktoberfest, click HERE. And you can access the city's event page where you'll find an event schedule, information about the vendors and musicians, and more HERE.
