Saturday, April 7th 9am-6pm &

The Table Mountain Casino BIG Hat Days, a Clovis Chamber Event, is the largest two day festival in Central California. Over 140,000 visitors fill the streets of Old Town to enjoy hundreds of craft and food booths.
Stroll along 15 blocks and shop at vendors with high quality merchandise from top of the line photography and art to home goods and even children’s toys and clothing. Visit local commercial business booths or contribute to a non-profit organization.
After all that walking, you’re bound to be hungry so let the BIG Hat Days food vendors take care of that appetite. If you’re looking for some delicious snack type food, stop at the kettle corn, shaved ice or chocolate covered fruit along Pollasky Ave. If barbeque, Mexican food or corn dogs are your forte, go to the Bullard Food Court.
Wash it all down with a Pepsi product sold by a local non-profit group. If a cold beer sounds good, come to the Michelob Ultra Beer Garden, kick back and enjoy the sounds of local bands.
Entertain your little ones at the full carnival on Fourth Street and the Happy Day Pony Rides and Great American Petting Zoo on Seventh Street and on Pollasky between 8th and 9th St.
Come meet Trevor Carey, the Central Valley’s newest hot talk show host from PowerTalk, 96.7. He will be in the PowerTalk booth in front of the Centennial Plaza on Saturday morning from 9 to noon.
The best part about BIG Hat Days is the happy faces of the crowds who enjoy the family friendly, safe environment.
