For over 33 years, Fog Fest has still maintained its vibrant and fun vibe - the reason why most locals and tourists still love to attend this much-anticipated event in the Pacifica. The first Fog Fest dates back in the year 1986 for its first run and it has been successful since. Its aim to promote the city of Pacifica and attract visitors and celebrate the community still materializes until today. In fact, the Fog Fest still raises funds to support local groups in the community. 
This year, the 2018 Pacific Coast Fog Fest is happening on September 29 and 30 from 10am to 6pm on Palmetto Ave in Pacifica with free admission. There will be over 200 booths designated for arts and crafts selling a smorgasbord of items like pots, jewelry, apparels, textiles, glasses and ceramics to name a few. Live music from local artists and guests will also make this 2-day event lively and joyful. There will be other activities that will surely excite the whole family.
