CLOVIS, CA–(Marketwire – August 20, 2010) – Fairfield Inn and Suites Fresno Clovis is proud to be the host hotel for the 35th Annual Table Mountain Casino ClovisFest Arts & Crafts Event in Clovis, California, on Saturday and Sunday, the 18th and 19th of September. The hotel near Yosemite National Parks is a perennial favorite for travelers in town for the event and looks forward to supporting and enriching the ClovisFest experience.
ClovisFest is an annual event held just south of Yosemite National Park and Sierra National Forest near Clovis and Fresno, California. Each morning during the event, adventurers in hot air balloons take to the skies at the Clovis Rodeo Grounds, filling the landscape with vibrant color as these graceful giants lift off. It is a sight rarely forgotten by visitors of any age. The ballooner’s preparation begins at 6:15 a.m. and lift-off is scheduled for 7:00 a.m.
After the hot air balloons have floated off into the skies over the Valley, visitors migrate across the street to the ClovisFest Arts and Crafts show. Each year over 250 arts and crafts vendors display their wares on Pollasky Ave. in Old Town Clovis between Third and Seventh Streets. Locals and travelers alike shop for handmade clothing, pottery and various locally made edibles and one-of-a-kind works of art.
After they’ve finished shopping, visitors to the fair are sure to stop by the All Valley Car Show. Some of the most beautiful cars in the Valley will be on display — from vintage machines to modern-era sports cars. While prowling the multicultural food booths at the car show, travelers are free to enjoy live entertainment or take the kids to a family carnival for pony rides. The over-21 set are invited to sit a spell and relax in ClovisFest’s beer garden to listen to live music and enjoy a cool refreshment.
ClovisFest draws over 70,000 eager attendees each year. Entry is free to the public and free parking is available. As a premier hotel in Clovis, Fairfield Inn & Suites Fresno Clovis is offering discounted rooms for those attending this event.
