Seventh Annual Cultural Celebration Set to Return November 4-15, 2021

ORGANIZATIONS INTERESTED IN APPLYING FOR A FOO FOO FESTIVAL GRANT, CLICK HERE TO VISIT ACEPensacola.org.

Pensacola’s Foo Foo Festival officially announced its plans for its seventh annual events, taking place November 4-15, 2021. Via a virtual kickoff, the Foo Foo Festival committee shared this year’s grant application process, funding structure, and COVID-safe procedures that will be implemented into this year’s festival. While the Foo Foo Festival’s plans for its 2020 events were canceled out of an abundance of caution to ensure the health and safety of the Pensacola community and attendees, the highly-anticipated festival will return in November 2021 better than ever before. 

In 2021, the Pensacola Foo Foo Festival will once again fund top-scoring grant applicants, with the number of grants to be awarded contingent upon the number of submissions. This year the Foo Foo Festival will provide up to $315,000 in grant funding, and grant applicants can apply for up to $100,000 in grant funding. For those local non-profits interested in applying for a Foo Foo Festival grant, visit ACEPensacola.org.

For those local non-profit organizations that apply and do not receive a grant but would still like to participate or those local for-profit businesses such as hoteliers, restaurants, bars, etc who are interested in participating by hosting events during the 12-day period and benefitting from marketing efforts, we encourage you to apply as a Friend of Foo.

Event Info

Choir! Choir! Choir! is “equal parts singing, comedy, and community-building.” YOU are the performer at Choir! Choir! Choir! But no audition is necessary. Just show up at the Rex Theatre, trade your ticket for a lyric sheet, join a group of highs, mids or lows, and master an arrangement of an awesome song.

It’ll be an unforgettable evening of singing, comedy, and connection led by Toronto-based musicians Daveed Goldman and Nobu Adilman. Check out their weekly sings at Clinton’s Tavern.

Choir! Choir! Choir! began in 2011, when Toronto-based musicians Goldman and Adilman (aka DaBu) started writing three-part arrangements of pop/rock/folk songs* and, once a week, inviting people to drop by a local tavern to learn one of them. They recorded each performance and posted it on YouTube.

Since then, they’ve enjoyed phenomenal success, amassing a large and dedicated group of followers (necessitating two sessions weekly) and attracting nearly 129,000 subscribers to their YouTube channel. Most importantly, C!C!C! has grown into a force for building community through song, performing on major stages and at major events internationally and earning enthusiastic coverage

(an article in the June 2016 issue of “The New Yorker” asserts that C!C!C! “has fashioned a profound way for people to connect and interact.”).

The Choral Society of Pensacola will bring DaBu to Pensacola to conduct an event similar to those in Toronto. Before the event, we’ll announce the evening’s song and urge potential participants to familiarize themselves with it.

You don’t have to read music, but you do need a ticket. Get yours before they sell out!

Songs range from classics by the Beatles, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, and Patti Smith to recent hits by Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, and Taylor Swift – with a wide variety of mainstream and indie songs in between. C!C!C! participants are equally diverse.
