Clemmons Community Day Returns in 2018



For nine years running, Clemmons Community Day has given the community fun, activities, vendors, and an opportunity to celebrate living in an awesome place.  Organized by the Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber of Commerce, Clemmons Community Day represents countless hours of time and talent expended by Chamber Director, Ginny Chase, and dozens of volunteers.  The event is noted for its exceptional celebration of community spirit and community pride.

It all began in 2010, when local real estate expert, Jody Peske, and former Clemmons mayor, John Bost, shared a vision for a community festival that would unite neighbors, friends, and local business owners.  Their vision has become an annual tradition that keeps growing and growing.

Scheduled for May 5th, 2018, Clemmons Community Day will once again return to the Jerry Long Family YMCA.  This tremendous community partner is a perfect location for the 1600+ expected attendees.  With overflow parking planned at the Novant Health Clemmons Medical Center and complimentary shuttle service to help transport families to and from the festivities, it promises to be another great event.

Clemmons Community Day is held rain or shine. “Thankfully, we’ve historically had beautiful weather,” said Ginny.  “But even on the occasion when it rained, we still had over 1500 visitors!”

Ginny continued, “People often expect a chamber event to be all suits-and-ties.  However, the Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber is special.  We are breaking down typical ideas and showing our community that our local entrepreneurs and leaders are passionate about our community.  Clemmons Community Day gives us a chance to showcase that truth.”

150 vendors are expected at this year’s event and will share their businesses and talents with those who visit their tents. But in addition to vendors, Clemmons Community Day is designed to entertain the whole family.  Ginny shared, “We love offering fun and games, including the popular rock wall for the kids to climb; a bounce house and other inflatables; train rides; and a DJ.  With a DJ playing great music, and all sorts of food—there’s something for everyone! It’s a great way to showcase exactly what helps Lewisville and Clemmons stand apart.”

Clemmons Community Day founder, Jody Peske, agreed. “Clemmons Community Day is a labor of love for all of us, and it has been since day 1.  We are so grateful for the hours invested by our volunteers and civil servants who make this day come together.”

As always, admission is free to the event. However, guests are encouraged to bring a donation to the Clemmons Food Pantry.  Clemmons Food Pantry always accepts canned and boxed food, but they are also in need of adult hygiene items.
