IMPORTANT NOTE: This cancelation applies to primary Foo Foo Fest grant-funded events only. A number of events are added each year, and placed under our marketing umbrella as “Friends of Foo.” However, whether these events occur or not, is not under the purview of the Foo Foo Festival or Art, Culture, and Entertainment, Inc. Please check the websites and/or social media pages of your favorite Friends of Foo for updates on the status of their individual events moving forward.
The nonprofit organization, Art, Culture, and Entertainment, Inc. (ACE), announced on April 2, 2020, that the 7th Annual Foo Foo Festival slated for November 5-16, 2020 has been canceled due to the global novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
The Foo Foo Festival will resume November 4-15, 2021 in Pensacola, Fla.
“Our board voted unanimously to suspend Foo Foo Festival this year in light of the pandemic,” said David Bear, trustee emeritus for Art, Culture, and Entertainment, Inc. “The timing for committing financially for 2020 is now and we felt it would be irresponsible to begin our process during this uncertain and precarious time. We look forward to getting back to business as usual next year.”

The Foo Foo Festival celebrates art, music, dance, theatre, cuisine and more with programming from grant recipients, throughout the city of Pensacola for nearly two weeks. Strategically positioned in and around some of Pensacola’s most popular events, the Foo Foo Fest encourages cultural tourists to make Pensacola an arts destination those two weeks. Foo Foo Festival’s impressive roster of events has become highly anticipated for its outstanding grant recipients who celebrate individual experiences specific to their craft and in 2019, the festival gave a total of $400,000 in grant funding to artists.

Downtown Pensacola Streets and Fiore Floral View Map
Tickets: Open to Public, No Ticket Required
On the morning of November 5th the floral and event planning team from FIORE OF PENSACOLA will brighten any case of “The Munday’s” by installing beautiful public floral installations throughout historic downtown Pensacola. The team will work down Government Street, beginning at the corner of Government and Palafox St. at The Plaza Ferdinand VII fountain, moving west to our new location on K Street (more about the new location below) creating spontaneous, beautiful, and artistic floral installations.
Florist and event planner Shannon Pallin’s shop, FIORE, is now open for business at a new location, just one mile away from her previous place on Main Street in Downtown Pensacola. The full-service studio and boutique are now at 405 S. “K” Street continuing to offer fresh flowers and plants, unique and creative wedding and event design, plus an array of other unique gift items and specialty services.
Owner Shannon Pallin has more than 25 years of comprehensive experience in the Wedding Industry and the new space will allow her to do more to showcase her creative and amazing floral designs and the work of other artists. The new space will also feature custom lines from local and out-of-area artists created just for FIORE, including glass centerpieces and other artwork. “I am so excited about our move to the new location,” said Shannon Pallin.
“We are still downtown, but with even more space for providing our customers with the same expert care and service our team has always given. This is a dream come true for me and we will host a variety of functions to showcase the magic of our work, as well as other artists. We are thrilled to be introducing this creative and inclusive space during Foo Foo Fest because of its mission and goals. We are honored to be apart of this important festival.”
Shannon Pallin beautifully designs, styles and executes incredibly chic, couture events in the Pensacola area, along the Gulf Coast region, as well as destination weddings. In addition to expert service, infused with creativity and reliability, Pallin offers not only astonishingly exquisite florals, but also full event design. The shop has the same hours, M-F 9:00 am – 5:30 pm, Saturday 10:00 am – 3:00 pm, and consultations are by appointment only. Stop in and say “Hi” at FIORE’s new location at 405 S. “K” Street
