In the tradition of Oktoberfest, historic downtown Plano is turning 15th Street into one big party!

Steinfest 2015 is Sunday, October 25, 2–10 p.m. Enjoy live music, German beer and sausage, games, contests, commemorative steins, T-shirts and more. Admission is free. Food and souvenirs are available for purchase, plus over a dozen restaurants are in the middle of all the action.

Musical entertainment kicks off with the Flying Balalaika Brothers, who can throw down a Slavic dance party! Their music is a unique blend of Gypsy folk and electric rock ‘n roll.

Next is Buffalo Ruckus, winners of the 2014 Texas Music Showdown and 2014 Shiner Rising Star competitions. They describe their music as “Americana, southern soul, psychedelic post-modern avant-garde experimental country-fried rock.”

American Idol finalist Tim Halperin is the headliner act. Halperin blends pop and rock with a hint of jazz. His catchy melodies, pure vocals, and rhythmic piano style have earned him fans across the country.
