FOO FOO FEST ANNOUNCES 2021 VIRTUAL KICKOFF MEETING
FRIDAY, JANUARY 29, 2021
Pensacola’s 12-Day Coastal Celebration Set to Return November 4-15, 2021
The New Year brings a new Foo Foo Festival! Mark your calendars for Foo Foo Festival’s virtual kickoff announcement, taking place on Friday, January 29, 2021, at 10:30 a.m. CT, to hear the news for this year’s plans and grant applications. The 7th Annual Foo Foo Festival will take place November 4-15, 2021 with 12 days of fun-filled celebrations.
The Foo Foo Festival team is excited to share the news around this year’s events, which will be held with COVID-Safe measures in mind. While Foo’s plans for its 2020 events were canceled out of an abundance of safety to ensure the health of the Pensacola community and attendees, the highly-anticipated festival will return in November 2021 better than ever before. Pensacola is celebrated for its unique culture, and the ability to celebrate the arts organizations, nonprofits, and local businesses that thrive within this beloved coastal destination is important now more than ever.
The invitation to join this year’s kickoff meeting is open to all nonprofits, prior participants, local-to-Pensacola community groups, local and regional arts organizations, businesses, hoteliers, and musicians that are interested in learning how to participate in Foo Foo Festival as a grant recipient and “Friend of Foo Foo Fest.” To access the kickoff meeting, please use the Zoom meeting link provided below.

The health and safety of the Pensacola Foo Foo Fest’s attendees, staff, vendors, and participants are of the utmost importance to the Foo Foo Fest team. As Foo Foo Fest organizers work to finalize the plans and event layout for this November’s festivities, the team is taking all precautions possible to ensure that the health of its festival-goers will be kept top of mind, including the institution of COVID-safe protocols and enhancement of outdoor spaces to allow for social distancing. The Foo Foo Fest team will continue to monitor developments surrounding COVID-19 leading up to November’s events and will fully cooperate with any instructions heeded for Escambia County by local and state officials and the CDC.
Foo Foo Fest looks forward to the opportunity to welcome new and returning festival attendees to its seventh annual beloved arts & culture event November 4-15, 2021, and to showing support for the Pensacola community during these challenging times.
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
