Downing Street in Historical Downtown Hollister, MO.

Hollister’s Grape & Fall Festival originally began in 1911 and was known as the “Grape Carnival.”  The Carnival was created to give local residents and their guests a chance to celebrate another year of hard work and success in the Ozarks, especially the success of the area vineyards.  Today the Grape & Fall Festival still celebrates those things, as well as the rich history and culture of Hollister.  The Festival has continued to grow throughout the years and has now become the largest annual event for the Hollister community, bringing together thousands of people each year! The Festival offers all-day fun for family and friends of all ages.

The featured event of the afternoon is the famously hilarious “Grape Stomp.”  Teams of 4 will compete for the traveling Ugly Monkey trophy, cash and various other prizes with their creative costumes and theme music.
Pre-registration is required for stompers with both an adult and a children’s category.
