Comedian Jim Barber from the Hamner Barber Variety Show is proud to once again serve as Master of Ceremonies for the 14th Annual Hollister Grape & Fall Festival’s Grape Stomp Competition this Saturday at 3:00pm on Historic Downing Street in Hollister, Missouri.
Sponsored by the Hollister Chamber of Commerce, the 14th Annual Grape & Fall Festival is the organizations biggest event of the year welcoming thousands of visitors to this unique and charming community. The Grape Carnival, as it was first known, enjoyed a renaissance in 1998 as the Grape & Fall Festival. The event originated to celebrate the annual grape harvest and features food, crafters—and the highlight of the Festival—the Grape Stomping Contest.
