Clovis Chamber’s Annual BIG Hat Days
Approved For June 12 & 13, 2021.

For Immediate Release

May 17, 2021 – Clovis, CA.The Clovis Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce that the 83rd annual BIG Hat Days, presented by Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino, has been approved and is being planned for June 12 & 13, 2021.

Historically BIG Hat Days is held the first full weekend in April to start off Clovis Rodeo month. This year the event was moved to June 12 & 13, 2021 to give our community a few extra months to get vaccinated and see the Fresno County COVID-19 related numbers decrease to a point where we can host a safe event.

The Clovis Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino as the new presenting sponsor of BIG Hat Days. “It’s our honor to be the new presenting sponsor for BIG Hat Days, a Clovis tradition that has brought so much joy to the community over the past 83 years,” said Deann Kamalani, director of marketing at Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino. “Upholding local heritage and culture has long-been a priority for Chukchansi Gold, which makes it even more fitting for us to be a part of this great celebration as it returns to the city.”

The event will feature over 300 food and craft booths on the streets of Old Town Clovis. The Clovis Chamber is planning a traditional Michelob Ultra – BIG Hat Days beer garden with limited capacity and will rotate the attendees throughout the beer garden hours. The Clovis Chamber was thrilled to see the success of the Clovis Rodeo this year and is looking forward to seeing the community safely attend BIG Hat Days. Hand wash and hand sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the event and each food vendor will be taking additional protective food handling measures to ensure public safety. To maintain a safe event for everyone, we ask that all attendees please wear protective masks and practice social distancing during the event.

The Clovis Chamber is looking for volunteers to join our events team to help host a successful event. Please visit our online volunteer portal here or call 559-299-7363.

The Clovis Chamber of Commerce would like to thank the City of Clovis and Fresno County Department of Environmental Health as we worked together on an action plan to ensure BIG Hat Days is safe for our volunteers, vendors, and attendees. We would also like to thank our presenting sponsor, Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino, and our event sponsors, Noble Credit Union, Donaghy Sales, Fresno/Clovis Convention and Visitors Bureau, Stretch 360, Realty Concepts, Moore Than SEO, European Wax, and Alert-O-Light for their support of the 83rd annual BIG Hat Days celebration.
