Many cities and towns pick one Saturday a month when shops will keep their doors open a few extra hours giving its citizens and visitors an opportunity to explore. McKinney, Texas is no exception. Many places in Historic Downtown McKinney will stay open from 7-10PM the Second Saturday of the month for what is known as the Art Walk.

Restaurants, galleries and music venues will have their doors propped open to welcome guests and allow people to taste delicious food unique to the restaurants found only in Downtown McKinney, see the talent of local artists and hear the amazing sounds of local and regional musicians.

For most Downtown McKinney merchants, Art Walk means party time. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages alike are served along with hors d’oeuvres. At the last Art Walk, more than 500 people showed up to stroll the area.
