The Clovis Rodeo Committee thanks everyone for your continued support.

We will get through this together.

September 16, 2020 Update:  Thank you again for stepping up and being Cowboy Strong.  The Clovis Rodeo Committee appreciates your continued generosity and support of the Creek Fire evacuees. 

The Creek Fire Large Animal Shelter at the Clovis Rodeo Grounds is shutting down this week – large animals from the rodeo grounds are being moved to the Fresno Fairgrounds and Reedley College to make it easier for volunteers and supplies to be consolidated.  Please contact CCADT at 888-402-2238 if you need assistance with your animals.

When we asked for you to be Cowboy Strong and help take care of our members, neighbors and friends who started hauling out their livestock on Saturday as the Creek Fire broke, we knew you’d respond, and you have, far beyond our expectations. We express our deep appreciation to the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office and the Central California Animal Disaster Team (CCADT) for picking up the phones and calling us to offer their help. The quick response from everyone involved continues to make a difference and we thank you.
The Rodeo is receiving many calls with supporters wanting to make donations. We encourage all of those requests to be directed to the CCADT (888-402-2238) who is coordinating the overall animal rescue effort. As the Creek Fire continues to threaten us, additional rescue shelters have been opened, and they will best direct your contributions where they are most needed.
Our continued support and prayers go to those in our community who are being impacted by the Creek Fire and all of the fires ravaging throughout California. Our deep appreciation goes to the first responders who have put themselves in harms way to protect us. We remain indebted to you for your continued service.

(Unless you have seen information here on the Clovis Rodeo’s official website or official Facebook page regarding making a donation to the Clovis Rodeo for efforts related to the Creek Fire please disregard those requests.  As we all open our hearts and our wallets at this time we want to make sure your generous contributions are going where you want them to be made and ask for you to be cautious.)

Clovis Rodeo Grounds Open to Animals Displaced by Creek Fire 

The Clovis Rodeo Grounds is also open for large animals that have been displaced by the Creek Fire impacting the Mammoth Pool, Shaver Lake, Big Creek and Huntington Lake region.

If large animal owners in the impacted region need to drop off horses etc., they are advised that due to construction at the rodeo grounds they need to enter the gate that is open in the fence immediately adjacent to the Clark Intermediate School parking lot, that runs along the north side of the rodeo grounds.  The gates at the front of the rodeo grounds are not accessible to truck and trailer traffic at this time.

The rodeo grounds are located at 748 Rodeo Drive in the heart of downtown Clovis.  The nearest intersection is Clovis Avenue and Fifth Street.  Access to the Clark Intermediate School parking lot to gain access to the rodeo grounds is off of Fifth Street by the water tower parking lot.

There is also construction taking place by the rodeo arena.   All visitors are advised to be cautious and stay away from the construction area for their safety and that of the animals.   Email if you need more information.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the 2020 Clovis Rodeo     scheduled to take place April 22-26, 2020 is now cancelled due to COVID-19.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the 2020 Clovis Rodeo is cancelled due to COVID-19.    A longstanding tradition for the community, it was not a decision that came easily for the Clovis Rodeo Committee.  It was a decision made because the health and welfare of our friends and neighbors must come first.

Carrying on our American Cowboy Tradition is important to each of us, the volunteers, sponsors, partner organizations and our community.  Coming together to celebrate our Clovis Way of Life with friends, neighbors and visitors is something we look forward to every Spring.  We tip our hats and extend our appreciation to the community, our fans and sponsors who have stuck with us and help to support the numerous charities and organizations that benefit from the Clovis Rodeo annually.  We couldn’t do any of this without each and every one of you.  We’re Stronger Together.  We look forward to the 107th Clovis Rodeo April 21-25, 2021.

Ticket refunds or exchanges for the 2020 rodeo will honored.  For the full refund policy please see below.

All other events traditionally held in April including the Jackpot Roping and Ranch Rodeo have also been cancelled.
