Considered the “Gateway to the Sierras” — including Sequoia, Kings Canyon, and Yosemite National Parks — Clovis was originally a stop on the San Joaquin Valley Railroad. Now it’s an up-and-coming “little city” of nearly 100,000 that crowns the northeast quadrant of the Fresno-Clovis metropolitan area. Balancing planned growth with the careful preservation of its unique western atmosphere, Clovis has boomed since the mid-1980’s to now encompass more than 23 square miles.
Clovis maintains a small-town community spirit as envisioned by its early founders, a commitment that can be seen in such local events as the annual Rodeo Days, Big Hat Days, and the Clovisfest celebration. This community pride, combined with Clovis’s unique growth opportunities, continues to attract new residents, developers, businesses, and industries. Whether shopping, dining, seeking out entertainment or family-centered activities, its residents find plenty of it all in and around Clovis.
