Regarding the Cancellation the Full Festival:

After careful evaluation of the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Clive has decided to cancel the 2020 Clive Festival. The City Council and staff discussed this possibility at the May 14 Clive City Council meeting.

The Clive Festival was scheduled for July 17-18, 2020.  While this year’s event has been cancelled, the City is still planning to have a fireworks celebration on the evening of Friday, July 17, 2020.  More details about the location and time of the fireworks will be announced on this website sometime in June.

“Public health and safety have always been, and will be always be, our top priority,” said Clive Leisure Services Director Richard Brown.  “We have the responsibility to provide safe experiences for our patrons, volunteers, staff, sponsors, vendors, entertainers, and our entire community.  Clive is dedicated to supporting healthy life experiences through quality parks and recreation opportunities and we will continue connecting with our community in new and inventive ways this summer.”

Clive thanks all those that were part of the early planning for the 2020 Clive Festival.  The City looks forward next year’s Clive Festival now scheduled for July 16-17, 2021.
