Since 1914, Clovis Rodeo has been a local tradition since it was started by families as a community festival with horse races, picnics, games and a parade. From the beginning, this non-profit event depends on the spirit, dedication, hard work and collaboration of over 700 volunteer members to provide our community with an opportunity to experience true western heritage through the historical sport of rodeo and to host one of the best rodeos in the western states.
We are proud to be able to showcase top rodeo talent and provide family entertainment to our community and visitors. And we are even more proud to be able to help support local non-profit groups in our communities.
An impact of $15 million to the region and more than $350,000 in proceeds from the Clovis Rodeo and related events benefits local charities annually. These groups include including 4-H, FFA, Clovis Schools, Clovis Police, California High School Rodeo Foundation, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Break the Barriers, Boy Scouts of America, Clovis Community Hospital, Majorie E. Radin Breast Care Center, Fresno State’s Veterans Education Program, Valley Children’s Healthcare Foundation and the Central California Blood Center.
Know your support continues to impact your community in a number of ways: funding – camp for the boy scouts, a blood mobile, the Clovis American Legion, Clovis Police Explorers, Clovis Community Medical Center and breast cancer research, Boys and Girls Club and Clovis Unified schools, Valley Children’s Healthcare, and college and high school agriculture education and rodeo events.
