Pacifica, California –It has been two long years since Pacifica has celebrated the Pacific Coast Fog Fest.
The 2022 Fog Fest will bring tons of fun for the two-day event, reuniting family and friends for this
annual tradition.


The Pacific Coast Fog Fest has a new President, James Crowe. Nominated by the Board of Directors in
November 2021, James brings 30 years of media and marketing experience to the event. When asked
about his new role he replied, “I am excited and extremely humbled to be working with such a talented
group of individuals dedicated to giving so much back to the community.” Past President Larry Passmore
stated, “After an extensive search during the pandemic, I know we had found the right person to take over
as President. The whole organization is excited to have him lead Fog Fest into the future.”


The Pacific Coast Fog Fest attracts thousands of visitors and celebrates the uniqueness of the region and
the spirit of all Pacificans. The Pacific Coast Fog Fest raises funds for local non-profit and other
community organizations. The organization also contributes to the “Gift for Pacifica Fund.” Through the
years, 50+ local organizations have benefited by volunteering in the festival, resulting in over $1,000,000
given back to the community since Fog Fest’s inception 35 years ago.


The Pacific Coast Fog Fest began in 1986 to promote The City of Pacifica and to celebrate the marvelous
coast. The last full weekend of September was chosen because historically the weather is unbeatable. The
Fog Fest kicks off Saturday morning at 10:00 A.M. with the Discover Pacifica Parade and marching band
competition. Festival attendees stay and enjoy the arts and crafts booths, food and beverage, music
entertainment, Family Fun Fest, and a variety of other activities.


The Pacific Coast Fog Fest Organizing Board includes Executive Committee members James Crowe
(President), Scott Cirimeli (Sponsorships), Kathlene Crowe (Secretary). Other committee members
include John Beckmeyer (Logistics), Josh Armstrong (Entertainment Chair), Robine Runneals (Parade
Chair), Archie Judan (Parade Co-Chair) all supported by Fog Fest Coordinator, Kathy Johnson.

Pacifica is the “Passage to The Coast” and “Everything Starts Here!” Come celebrate 35 years of
traditional family fun at the Pacific Coast Fog Fest.

Fogfest 2021 Postponed to Sept 2022

Dear Fog Festival Attendees and Vendors,

We hope all of you, your families and friends are safe and staying healthy at this time. Even though we see new Covid case numbers coming down, and the implementing of Covid Vaccinations, there is still an uncertainty in the ability to host a large event like ours. Since forward planning starts so early in our calendar year, we have made the decision to postpone our 35th Annual Pacific Coast Fog Fest until September 2022.

Our goal is to continue our annual tradition of bringing great music, entertainment, art food and libations to our coast side. We also want to continue to support our amazing Community Groups and the vendors who share their terrific goods with us during our two-day Festival albeit in 2022.

During this pandemic we have gained a deeper appreciation for the life-giving services of “essential workers” in our communities. Artists provide a different kind of “essential” service. Each year, the Pacific Fog Festival brings you artists and vendors who want to inspire us with their goods and show that there are ways to find quality hand made goods made locally. We hope you all continue to stay safe and healthy and please, watch for updates on events and opportunities on our Facebook and Instagram pages.

With Much Appreciation for your understanding and commitment,

The Fog Fest Organizing Group

Fogfest 2020 Postponed – Letter to Attendees and Vendors

Dear Fog Festival Attendees and Vendors,

We hope all of you, your families and friends are safe and staying healthy at this time. Considering all Bay Area residents are being asked to do their part to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus and it is not likely that restrictions for large public events will be lifted soon, we have made the decision to postpone our 35th Annual Pacific Coast Fog Fest until September 2021.

Our goal is to continue our annual tradition of bringing great music, entertainment, art food and libations to our coast side. We also want to continue to support our amazing Community Groups and the vendors who share their terrific goods with us during our two-day Festival.
