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. To learn more and apply for this year’s Friend of Foo program, visit FooFooFest.com. Please note that there is a submission and approval process for the Friend of Foo program.

Event Info

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
