  4. Ratrodtober Car & Bike Show #4

    October 13, 2018, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM @ TUPPS Brewery

    Now in it's fourth year, Ratrodtober is a celebration of historical vehicles and those who build them. While the star of the show is the rat rod, we celebrate every vehicle that is pieced together by its owner. Whether restored back to original, a Frankenstein or somewhere in-between, each vehicle tells a great story. Held at TUPPS Brewery in McKinney, TX, Ratrodtober brings together the finest people, vehicles and beer in all of North Texas. Much like each vehicle is painstakingly crafted, so is the beer. And for that, we can all cheers. There will be no shortage of fun! Visit the vendor village, check out the vehicles, belly up to the bar, try something new at one of the food trucks, rock out to live music and catch all the action of the mini bike races! Best of all, it's FREE TO THE PUBLIC! Bring the whole family! Follow along on Facebook for event updates and visit for more information.
