Hollister Independence Rally

Hollister, California
July 1-3, 2016


Hollister Rally General Info

The "incident", which was blown way out of proportion, in 1947 in the city of Hollister with a limited number of bikers getting wild, gave rise to the "American Biker" and it also inspired Marlon Brando's movie "The Wild One". For a number of years the Hollister motorcycle rally was canceled, in part because the city did not want to pay the additional money for police as well as other issues. Now that there is a new promoter, the event is back on for the foreseeable future. With all of the rich history and importance to the biker world, the Hollister rally is on the 2016 Lightning Customs' Major Biker Rallies List.

Hollister Attractions

The center of the bike rally is San Benito Street in downtown Hollister. Some of the events and attractions include live music all day (The Guess Who and Fabulous Thunderbirds played in 2015), custom bike show, tattoo contest, poker walk, poker run, Ms. Hollister Freedom contest, charity events, fireworks, and vendors.
