CLOVIS “A Better Way of Life”

Once home to ranchers, farmers, and the old mill at the end of Shaver Lake Flume, Clovis has become a community that provides a unique blend of rural and urban living. Clovis has achieved recognition as a “festival city” and celebrates Big Hat Days, the annual Clovis Rodeo and Parade, seasonal Farmer’s Market in Old Town Clovis, Clovisfest Music Festival, and Children’s Electric Christmas Parade.

Clovis is a community that supports families through excellent educational opportunities, responsive public safety services, clean streets and parks, and planned community growth to bring balance to the local economy and its residents.
