Fog Fest returns September 28th & 29th, 2024

Pacific Coast Fog Fest Board of Directors Seeks Community Support to Make This Year’s Event Possible

Pacifica, CA April 10, 2024 — To our fellow community members who love Fog Fest and want to see it happen this year, we invite you to get involved! We are currently recruiting volunteers to fill specific roles that are necessary to put on the 37th Annual Pacific Coast Fog Fest.

This year we are up against some significant challenges with recruitment, regulations and rising costs. Since our last public update, I’m glad to share that we have added 8 new members to our team and continue to optimize our budget. However, there is still a very high chance that if we do not address the current needs this year’s Fog Fest will not happen. That would crush our community — local businesses and organizations would suffer and we would potentially lose this cherished, long standing tradition forever.

So I ask for your help once again. Please see below and reach out if you can join the effort to #SaveFogFest!

Will you join one of the following teams?

  • Legal
  • Security
  • Website Management
  • Fundraising & Sponsorships
  • Marketing & Communications
  • Cashier Training & Management

If so, please contact John Beckmeyer at

Did you know? All proceeds from the festival each year are given back to the community groups that participate. The total amount awarded since the year 2000 is over $1.25 million!

On the festival days, our community groups staff booths, handle parking lots, marshall the parade, act as block captains helping out visitors throughout the day, hang banners, put out traffic control signs, move equipment, and more.

If you or someone you know is part of a community group who wants to raise funds AND support our community with its largest event of the year then please contact Kathy Johnson, Fog Fest Coordinator at

Thank you for reading and for your continued support.

Yours in community,
John Beckmeyer
Acting President, Pacific Coast Fog Fest

About the Fog Fest

The Pacific Coast Fog Fest each year promotes the City of Pacifica, attracts visitors, celebrates our community and raises funds for local community groups as well as the “Gift for Pacifica Fund.” Now over 50 groups benefit and to date, an amount of $1,250,000 has been donated back.

The Fog Fest was created in 1986 to promote Pacifica and to celebrate our 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 am with the Parade, honoring the local community and a competition for best float. Then stay and enjoy our Arts and Crafts booths, Food and Beverage booths, Music & Entertainment, Family Fun Fest and a variety of other activities.
