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

Zarzaur Law, P.A., a personal injury law firm based in Pensacola, Florida, presents a special event that will be a Foo Foo Fest edition of its well known “Legal Graffiti” event.

This three-day live painting event will attract locals and visitors that are in the Downtown Pensacola area for the Foo Foo Fest activities happening during the first two weeks in November. Visitors can watch three artists work on large canvases using a variety of paint, including spray paint, just like the traditional “Legal Graffiti” fundraiser events hosted by Zarzaur Law, P.A. during the monthly Gallery Nights.

The artists will paint on a 6ft x 6ft vinyl canvas at the corner of Palafox and Romana Streets right outside of the Zarzaur Law building in Downtown Pensacola. Each of the three artists, Jaime Shevant, Gabe Pellerin and Patrick Quintanilla, who were chosen through a submission process, will create one original piece using a variety of paint mediums and techniques.

“Being a part of this event brings me excitement to see where the Art scene and Pensacola community as a whole will go. Being able to expose the community to artists performing their passion may encourage others to take similar steps,” said artist Gabe Pellerin.

Zarzaur Law’s “Legal Graffiti” Foo Foo Fest Style will take place Friday Nov. 8 and conclude on Sunday, Nov. 10 in Downtown Pensacola on the closing weekend of Foo Foo Fest. The completed paintings will be auctioned off as a fundraiser for Gulf Coast Kid’s House.

“We are so thankful to be a member of such a thriving downtown community,” said Joe Zarzaur, Zarzaur Law, P.A.
