CLOVIS, CA (KMJ) – The Clovis Chamber of Commerce kicks of Rodeo month in 2022 with the 84th annual Big Hat Days event in Clovis, CA.

The Chamber will host a fun, safe, and special event this year on April 2 & 3, 2022.

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 84 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 2022.
