The 3rd Annual McKinney Wine and Music Festival presented by Master Built Contractors, on Tuesday announced its lineup of event entertainment and activities for the festival, which will take place noon-5 p.m. Oct. 19 at Dr. Glenn Mitchell Memorial Park in downtown McKinney, 300 W. Louisiana St. The first band to take the stage will be the Jessica McVey Band followed by the Maylee Thomas Band and Atlantis Aquarius.
Wine tasting is at the center of the event with over 100 wines to taste. The event will feature local wineries from McKinney and the North Texas region alongside nationally known brands such as Kendall Jackson and Kim Crawford wines.
“This year we’re expanding our wine selection for our attendees,” said Lauren Stephan, president of SBG Hospitality. “We’re expanding our brands to showcase wines from around the world and we’re also increasing the wine tables at the event to make sure people are spending their time having fun and not waiting in lines,”
The festival is free and open to all ages, but tickets are encouraged to help organizers gauge event attendance. Attendees should purchase their wine tasting tickets in advance to avoid registration lines.
