Pere is the Parade from 2013. Watch for this year's Coverage!
The Pacific Coast Fog Fest was created in 1986 to promote the City of Pacifica & to celebrate its marvelous coast & community. Fog Fest now attracts up to 60,000 festival-goers and the event is unique in that we are proud to give back proceeds to community groups that partner with us and to the Gift for Pacifica Fund.
Pacifica is known for its fog but it also has spectacular sunny days. The last weekend of September was chosen for this event because historically the weather is unbeatable. The dates for 2016 are September 24th & 25th. So mark your calendars and remember, this is a free event for all to enjoy! We welcome you to visit our website and follow us on Twitter and now Instagram.
