2013 Hollister Airshow

Upside-down flying, loop-de-loop maneuvers, and other death-defying aerobatics will be taking place at the Hollister Airshow this coming Memorial Day Weekend.  You gotta see it to believe it! And, when you do, it'll still be unbelievable.

The event  runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 25, and Sunday, May 26. According to the schedule, the airshow starts at 11 a.m. and ends around 3:30 p.m.  For details of the well-known performers, such as Vicky Benzing, Dr. D, and Eddie Andreini,  check out this link.

Tickets are available at the Airport Manager's office at the Hollister Airport throughout the week, as well as at the gate on the Airshow Weekend. Adult tickets are $15, and children (6 through 12), $10. Children who are five and under get in for free. Parking is $5.  Cash only.

Free shuttle bus service is available from the Parking Garage on Fourth and San Benito Streets in downtown Hollister. The shuttle leaves about every 30 minutes from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (Note: parking at the garage is free.) An on-demand shuttle service is also available at Frazier Lake Airpark.

  1. A great post about a very important part of the community. We here where I live have an airshow in August.


    1. Thanks, Yvonne. I think many of us, including myself, forget how important the airport is to our local economy. It's a small general aviation airport that's been here for many, many years.

  2. We quite often have spitfires and hurricanes flying over the village but when this Baby came over one day the hair on the back of my head stood on. It flew in at tree top level.
    Enjoy the airshow it looks great.
