October means falling autumn leaves, changing weather and the Table Mountain Casino ClovisFest and Community Medical Centers Hot Air Balloon Fun Fly, a Clovis Chamber Event. Join thousands of Clovis and Fresno locals in visiting Old Town Clovis for free, family fun at the upcoming 45th Annual ClovisFest!
This year’s event has been given a big facelift with the addition of long-awaited new attractions like the Fresno/Clovis Convention & Visitors Bureau‘s ClovisFest International Village – where you and your family will experience cultural adventures and wonderful live performances. We’ve worked hard to enhance this year’s event including a wide range of hot air balloons, unique craft vendors, festival foods, and our cultural adventure, the Fresno/Clovis Convention & Visitor’s Bureau International Village on 7th Street.
Get to the Clovis Rodeo grounds before sunrise and feast your eyes on the majestic hot air balloons readying for takeoff! You’ll want to arrive very early on Saturday and Sunday to ensure a good vantage point to watch these beauties launch. Most often, our balloon pilots begin inflating around 6:15 am and plan for liftoff around 7:00 am, weather permitting. Visitors will be able to enjoy delicious breakfast items while they wait for the festivities to begin. Unfortunately, balloon rides are not available to the public.
