Welcome to Clovis!
The Clovis Chamber of Commerce is proud to present the 2020 Clovis Lifestyle & Resource Guide. This year we are celebrating “Clovis – A Way of Life.” The City of Clovis is a truly unique community made up of the pioneer spirit mixed with modern enthusiasm. As you thumb through the pages of this magazine, you will learn about the many facets that make up the City of Clovis from the exciting annual Clovis Rodeo to our outstanding schools, outdoor life, craft beers, dining, and shopping. On behalf of the Clovis Chamber of Commerce we are glad you decided to take the opportunity to enjoy all that Clovis has to offer.
Since the Clovis Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1910, we have worked closely with the local business community to create a harmonious climate of cooperation with our local merchants, residents, visitors and city government. The Clovis Chamber is a strong advocate of our over 600 members in addition to the entire central valley. We know that an active and successful business community means a strong and stable community our residents.
The City of Clovis hosts over 80 outdoor events each year. From the world famous Clovis Rodeo held the last weekend of April each year to the Friday night Farmers Markets held from May – September. The Clovis Chamber is very proud to host Clovis’ two largest street festivals each year, BIG Hat Days and ClovisFest. BIG Hat Days takes over the streets of Old Town the first weekend in April each year to start Rodeo month in Clovis. Thousands of families visit Clovis during the two day festival and enjoy the over 400 food and craft vendors in addition to live entertainment. ClovisFest held the last weekend in October each year is highlighted by the dozens of Hot Air Balloons that majestically fly over the City of Clovis during the ClovisFest Hot Air Balloon Fun Fly. ClovisFest also features our acclaimed International Village entertainment stage featuring live entertainment from over 25 cultural groups that are a part of our great community. These wonderful traditional events, along with the annual Children’s Christmas parade, Rodeo parade, pole vaulting championships and the many athletic events hosted by the Clovis Unified School District make living in Clovis fun and exciting.
Clovis is thriving and growing. At the Clovis Chamber of Commerce we are not only supportive of our Chamber members, but we proudly support everything about our community. More and more families move to Clovis each year and our community is embracing our new residents. The major attraction for families is the award winning Clovis Unified School District and its strong leadership, state of the art facilities and a dedicated administration and staff. Medical professionals and students are flocking to Clovis from around the country to teach and learn at the new California Health Sciences University campus which will open in April 2020. Clovis Community Medical Center, Valley Children’s Hospital and St. Agnes medical center are also attracting the best of the best in health care professionals to serve our community.
