Pacific Coast Fog Fest

September 28–29

Fog Fest was created in 1986 to celebrate Pacifica and its marvelous coast–plus it’s almost always great weather during the last weekend in September when it’s traditionally held. Kicking off with a parade down Palmetto Avenue, the festival continues with musical performances, food and beverages, contests and plenty of amusement games and rides for the kids.
