A Taste of Germany in Historic Downtown McKinney

The “beer garden” covers a total of 14 blocks throughout McKinney's Historic Downtown square so you can enjoy all downtown McKinney has to offer with a German beer in one hand and a bratwurst in the other. McKinney Main Street, supporting sponsors and the shops in Historic Downtown McKinney will host nonstop activities in the heart of our great city. 


Several streets downtown will be closed during the festival, and on-street parking is limited. Parking is available at the free parking lots throughout downtown. Access a map of the free parking lots.
