Salsa Fest McKinney
“What’s up Becca?”
“Wanna go to the Star-Spangled Salsa Fest in McKinney TX”
“Ummmmm . . . when you say salsa do you mean the kind we eat OR the kind we dance to?”
“The kind you eat.”
“Duh! Heck yeah!! Do fat kids like cake?”
“I’ll take that as a YES honey”. 😂
Interpretation = my husband is a salsa addict.
Throw in our addiction to McKinney and we got to put this on the Gcal y’all.
Done and done!! 👊🏽
Salsa Fest in McKinney
It doesn’t matter where we are, whether we are perusing the Farmer’s Market, the grocery store, opening day at Rockwall Farmer’s Market, a festival, a shop on the McKinney Square, a shop in the mall, a kiosk in the mall, the Chestnut Square Farmer’s Market . . . and this list goes on and on and on –> Brian is the master at filling our pantry to capacity with salsa.
He was stoked that the Salsa Fest in McKinney Texas was returning for it’s second year.
Honestly, I think we all are, am I right?
Our friends over at Bernard’s Gourmet Foods have gathered a salsa-loving committee to make this event possible. Which is ironic because every time we look in our pantry an entire shelf of Bernards Game Day salsa is looking back at us.
Not only do we ❤️ salsa, we ❤️ Downtown McKinney.
If there is one thing that our friends in McKinney do amazingly well – its that they put on our favorite festivals throughout the year. The kind that get the whole town talking. And the kind that bring lots of memories. TBH, we’re not sure if we love the Krewe of Barkus, Home for the Holidays or the Salsa Fest more.
It brings us to McKinney and that makes us wanna do a happy dance and kick up our heels.
You’d love to celebrate with your community with a family-friendly 4th of July experience that is also a good cause to boot.
Oh, and don’t worry, it starts a little later in the day so you can truly sleep in on your valued day off 🤗 from corporate America.
7 Reasons To Attend the Second Annual Star-Spangled Salsa Fest in McKinney TX
1. Let’s be honest, we all believe that chips and salsa always make a complete meal.
2. If you’re a true Texan, you must consume a minimum amount of salsa per year to stay here 😂
I’m pretty sure that’s written somewhere in perfect legalese.
3. You’ll get to spend time in McKinney.
McKinney was voted #1 Place to Live in America. And, after you sample the salsa from the Beat The Heat Hot sauce and salsa competition, let your kids play in the fun zone and listen to live music, you can enjoy more of the city if you have time left to spare.
4. Spicy foods raises your metabolism.
This will help you burn off anything else you consume during the weekend like blueberry pie, tacos, beer, margaritas.
5. Its the perfect place to bring your out-of-town visitors.
6. This event gives back to those in need (scroll to the bottom of this page to see more)
7. 100% of your ticket purchase will help build the Community Garden Kitchen of Collin County, which will serve meals to our neighbors in need.
The RBFCU McKinney Star-Spangled Salsa Fest Committee is comprised of community members with a heart for service and a mind to nourish others. This committee has been gathered together by Bernard’s Gourmet Foods to help Community Garden Kitchen build its facility at Holy Family School. Once built, the Community Garden Kitchen facility will be “a center of hope and compassion, ensuring that no one in our community suffers the fear and distress of food insecurity (communitygardenkitchen.org).”
🔥 BONUS: You’ll get the chance to support unique small businesses (and pack your pantry with salsa).
Unlike our breweries here (at least until September), you can have your cake and eat it too. Yes you can can eat your salsa and purchase your favorite jars to take home with you.
Join your neighbors and friends who are coming in from Collin County, Dallas County, from Sherman, Denton, Fort Worth and beyond on Thursday July 4 (right after Red White and Boom, of course).

Thank you to Salsa Fest McKinney for sponsoring this post, 7 Reasons To Attend the Second Annual Star-Spangled Salsa Fest in McKinney TX. I was paid for my time but my love of the mission of this festival and the fun it will bring to this community is something that I believed would bring value to my local DFW audience.
