BIG Hat Days

April 5 and 6, 2014 in Old Town Clovis
Saturday, April 5th 9am-6pm &
Sunday, April 6th 9am-5pm

Welcome!

The Table Mountain Casino 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 350 craft and food booths.

Stroll along 11 blocks and shop at vendors with high quality merchandise from top of the line photography and art to home goods and even children's toys and clothing. Visit local commercial business booths or contribute to a non-profit organization.

After all that walking, you're bound to be hungry so let the BIG Hat Days food vendors take care of that appetite. If you're looking for some delicious snack type food, stop at the kettle corn, shaved ice or chocolate covered fruit or hot pretzel trailers along Pollasky Ave. If barbeque, Mexican food, corn dogs or shrimp filled artichokes are your forte, go to the Bullard Food Court.

Wash it all down with a Pepsi product sold by a local non-profit group. If a cold beer sounds good, come to the Budweiser Beer Garden, kick back and enjoy the sounds of local bands.

Entertain your little ones at the full carnival in the old DMV lot and the Happy Day Pony Rides on Seventh Street and the Great American Petting Zoo on 4th Street.

The best part about BIG Hat Days is the happy faces of the crowds who enjoy the family friendly, safe environment.

Come on over and join us.
