Since its inception, the Pescadero Arts and Fun Festival has partnered with The South Coast Artists Alliance. The SCAA Fine Art Exhibit in the Grand Hall runs concurrently with PAFF. Both organizations strive to support local artists and youth through celebrations of Art and Community. A Gala reception is held the Friday before the festival, kicking off the weekend festivities. The South Coast Artist’s Alliance is a 501c3.
These events are both supported by the Pescadero I.D.E.S. Society, whose grounds have been the home to these events since 1991. The Pescadero I.D.E.S society is a not for profit organization.
Over the years, PAFF has been joined in force by many local community support groups. Most recently, the non-profit Puente, the South Coast Community Resource Center, has hosted their Annual Fun Run the Saturday morning of PAFF, raising funds for the San Mateo Coastal community.
A highlight of the Pescadero Arts and Fun Festival is our “only in Pescadero” Fashion Extravaganza, a comedy spectacle coordinated by South Coast Children’s Services featuring items from the SCCS Thrift Shop. Funds raised by South Coast Children’s Services support community youth programs.
A taste of the community, parents and teachers from The La Honda Pescadero Unified School District gather and hand make the Tamales available for sale near the stage.
We hope you’ll join our mission to support our local youth!
The Pescadero Arts and Fun Festival (PAFF) is a 501c3 under the umbrella of the Pescadero Education Foundation.
