Posted by

32nd Anniversary Street Festival, Car Show and Chili Cook Off – July 21, 2018 – 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Hollister, CA - The Hollister Downtown Association (HDA) invites you to our 32nd Anniversary Street Festival, Car Show and Chili Cook Off on Saturday, July 21st from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm in Historic Downtown Hollister!

The Street Festival has featured free watermelon for attendees and for the last 25 years has featured a very popular car show. Over 200 beautiful cars and trucks and 8,000 festival goers will descend upon downtown to catch up with friends and family while admiring the vehicles on display. You will surely hear proud owners telling the history of their cars while happily allowing pictures to be taken from the interested attendees. From muscle cars to low riders, exotic European vehicles to trucks, there is a style and color for everyone to enjoy. Enthusiastic vendors will line up along Fifth Street between San Benito and Monterey Street, bringing items such as shave ice, kettle corn and baked potatoes. Be sure to visit our raffle table and buy an event shirt while you are in the vendor area. We will feature live bands, including Scooby & El Fuego and The Flashbacks, on two stages along San Benito Street. The kids’ area will encompass the 400 block, complete with bounce houses and face painting. This year we are excited to partner with the Hollister Firefighters Union once again to add a chili cook-off to round out the 400 block fun!

Last year’s best of show car was a bright red 1956 Chevy Bel Air owned by Carl Gillihan from Escalon. It will be featured on this year’s poster and t-shirts. Car owners interested in participating in our event can register online or stop by our office at 514 Monterey Street.
