The Southern Missouri Arts Connection (SMAC) signed the lease on a building on historic Downing Street in Hollister on January 29, with plans to create an art center.
The Grape & Fall Festival was created to promote area businesses, crafters, musicians and to provide the community with a wholesome free family event. Local performers and the famous Grape Stomp Competition provide hours of exciting entertainment. Drawing a crowd of more than 10,000 attendees, the event grows larger each year! The Hollister Grape & Fall Festival will be held on Historic Downing Street which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
