10th Annual Hollister Grape and Fall Festival
Presented by the Hollister Area Chamber of Commerce

Hollister, MO (September 18, 2008) — September in Hollister marks the return of a favorite annual tradition. The 10th Annual Hollister Grape and Fall Festival will be held on Saturday, September 27th from 10 am to 6 pm on Downing Street in Historic Downtown Hollister. The Grape and Fall Festival features great food, crafts, children’s activities, live music and entertainment from some of Branson’s best performers, a wine tasting garden, and the signature event—the world famous Grape Stomp competition, where teams compete for the honor of winning the Ugly Monkey Trophy. The annual event is one of the most popular in the region, and attendance has exceeded 5,000 people in previous years. This year promises to be the most exciting and well-attended Grape and Fall Festival ever.

The Grape and Fall Festival is a celebration of Hollister’s 100 year history. In the early days, Hollister was an important stop on the railroad, and Fall was the time of year when people brought agricultural products and other goods to Hollister for transportation to larger markets. The Grape and Fall Festival celebrates Hollister’s past and ushers in Hollister’s future. Hollister is a city that values its past while forging ahead with growth and progress. Next year, Hollister will celebrate the opening of an 85,000 square foot indoor water park with another 3.5 acres of outdoor water park, two hotels, a 7,500 seat event center, and new retail shops and restaurants, among other development projects currently underway in the Hollister Area. Hollister welcomes progress, offers a very favorable business climate, and enjoys a wonderful quality of life.

10th Annual Hollister Grape and Fall Festival—Saturday, September 27th, 2008—10 am – 6 pm, Downing Street, Historic Downtown Hollister.
