  • Pastels on the Plaza 2018

Pacific Builders has participated in Pastels on the Plaza for over 10 years.  This is a fun, creative event that also helps the children of our community.

Starting in 1987, Northcoast Children’s Services has partnered with local businesses and artists to transform the sidewalks of the Arcata Plaza into a colorful art gallery on the first Saturday in October. 

Pastels on the Plaza is a benefit for Northcoast Children’s Services. Local businesses may purchase a square of sidewalk and then a local artist will turn that cement square into a work of art using their design and creativity.  This is a unique community event where proceeds help fund the Preschool and Family Services that extend to over 1000 children and families in Humboldt and Del Norte Counties annually.

Hundreds of people turn out to view the work in progress and stroll the plaza after the event before the rain and wear sets in returning the plaza sidewalks back to their normal state.

This Year over $39,000 was raised!

Pacific Builders recognizes that the company's role in the construction process is greater than to simply build projects. To be successful, we must also work to strengthen our community and build long-lasting working relationships.
