Hollister Grape & Fall Festival
Hollister’s Grape and Fall Festival began in 1911 as the Grape Carnival and is now the largest annual event for the community. The “Color Me Grape” 5K Fun Run kicks off the day’s activities through the downtown area. Runners can register at http://Hollisterchamber.net. Registration fees are used to assist local non-profit organizations. Excitement continues throughout the day with live entertainment featuring some of Branson’s biggest stars. A large crowd forms in the afternoon to view as teams compete for the traveling Ugly Monkey trophy, cash and other prizes in the Grape Stomp with creative costumes and theme music. Pre-registration is required for stompers with both an adult and a children's category.
