About the Festival
The Pacific Coast Fog Fest promotes the City of Pacifica, attracts visitors, celebrates our community, and raises funds for local non-profit community groups. The Fog Fest is produced by the Fog Fest Organizing Group (FFOG). Local non-profit/community groups contribute time, energy, and enthusiasm to the running of the festival. All profits generated by the Fog Fest will be distributed to these groups, as well as a contribution to the “A Gift for Pacifica” fund.
Thousands are expected to visit the Fog Fest on September 28th and 29th. To help you plan your visit, here are some tips to make your trip to the coast a more fun and enjoyable one.
