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.

Author Talk with Eleanor Randolph

Eleanor Randolph, a veteran journalist and author will return to Pensacola to share her experiences as a female journalist and details on her new book, “The Many Lives of Michael Bloomberg.” The author talk begins at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9, at the Pensacola Museum of Art, located at 407 S. Jefferson St. in downtown Pensacola. A book signing will begin promptly at 4:00 p.m., with books available for purchase at the museum.

Randolph began her career in journalism at the Pensacola News Journal in 1968. She has covered national politics, the media, and Russia for The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times and other newspapers. She has been a member of the New York Times editorial staff since 1998. Her articles have appeared in magazines including Vogue, Esquire, and The New Republic.

Randolph’s new book, “The Many Lives of Michael Bloomberg” set for release on Sept. 10, is an account of the former New York City mayor’s life and the computer software system he invented, which provides financial data to bankers and investors as well as its impact on the financial universe. The book chronicles Bloomberg’s life from his modest Jewish working-class upbringing in Massachusetts to Wall Street to New York City mayor to present day, and how he now spends his money philanthropically and politically.

“As a member of the New York Times editorial board covering New York City, I began writing about Michael Bloomberg when he became mayor,” Randolph said in a statement through her publisher, Simon & Schuster. “Through his dozen years in this heady job, Bloomberg changed before my eyes from a feisty Wall Streeter to a powerful political force. There seemed to be a fascinating, complex character behind his starched and sometimes staid image, and I felt that nobody had really given him his due.”

Randolph also authored the book “Waking the Tempests: Ordinary Life in New Russia” after living in Russia from 1991-93.
