Visitors are drawn to our signature events including: our weekly, seasonal outdoor Farmers Market through the summer and an indoor Market during the winter; our acclaimed Fourth of July celebration; Fall Festival; Lion’s Club Car Show; Cinema in the Street and many more. Our annual traditions and many programs help enrich daily living that contribute to the appeal of Clawson being a destination for entertainment and fun.
