The Clovis Chamber of Commerce kicks of Rodeo month the first weekend of April with their annual Big Hat Days event in Clovis, CA. Plans are underway for the Chamber to host a fun, safe, and special event each year.

BIG Hat Days, 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-six 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 2024.

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.
