Visitors will once again fill the streets of Old Town Clovis for the 46th Annual ClovisFest and Hot Air Balloon Fun Fly on Saturday, Sept. 25, and Sunday, Sept. 26.

The event was canceled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

ClovisFest is from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. both days but, show up early if you want to see the hot air balloons.

The balloons will be staging at the Clovis Rodeo Grounds around 6:00 a.m.

Delight in live performances each day on the International Village stage featuring performances by Celtic Motion Dance Company, Danzantes Yoztaltepetl, Halau Hula I Ka La, and many more.

There will also be a beer garden and live music on the outdoor stage on 4th St. between Pollasky and Woodworth Avenues.

Enjoy the many food vendors along Pollasky Avenue. Try something new or enjoy traditional fair favorites, such as cinnamon rolls, shaved ice, cotton candy, corn dogs, cultural favorites, tacos, and more.

With over 200 craft and commercial vendor booths, you will have the opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind jewelry, glassware, woodworks, and unbelievably unique items. You’re sure to find something you won’t find anywhere else.

There is also a Kids Zone with a petting zoo, pony rides, inflatables, entertainers, and attractions.

ClovisFest will be respecting our local health guidelines.

Please wear your facemask, social distance and wash and sanitize your hands.
