BIG Hat Days Presented By Clovis Chamber of Commerce and Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino!
The Clovis Chamber of Commerce kicks of Rodeo month in 2022 with the 85th annual Big Hat Days event in Clovis, CA. Plans are underway for the Chamber to host a fun, safe, and special event this year on April 1 & 2, 2023.
The 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.
For eighty-four years, Big Hat Days has served as a community showcase and a tribute to our western heritage and small-town character. We look forward to continuing this tradition in 2023.
As we move closer to the date, we will continue to update our community on the event. We look forward to seeing our community in April.
