Pacific Fine Arts Festivals produces approximately 23 two and three day events per year, primarily in the San Francisco Bay area. At some festivals, the artist's displays are set up along the sidewalks or in parks, while at others streets are closed and displays set up down the center of the thoroughfare. Festivals are located in towns and cities both large and small, as well as in tourist destinations such as Mammoth Lakes and Lake Tahoe.
The majority of PFAF's events are Fine Art Festivals featuring paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture, ceramics, graphics, and jewelry. A number of Arts and Crafts Festivals are also produced where, in addition to fine art, handmade clothing, leather goods, wooden toys, country items, and dried flowers can be found.
Several of PFAF's festivals have been ranked in the top 200 outdoor festivals in the country by Sunshine Artists Magazine. In 1997 they awarded first place in their First Annual National Poster Contest to the poster for the California Strawberry Festival, a PFA event.
