PRESS RELEASE

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.

About “Into the Breeches”

It’s 1942 and with the men at war, the Oberon Play House is lacking its director and leading men. The season will be canceled… until the director’s wife rallies the troops at home for an all-female production of Shakespeare’s Henry V. With the opportunity to move from the sidelines to center stage, the women forge ahead with a spirit of collaboration, dauntless enthusiasm, the belief that art has the power to move us forward, and that a community can put its best foot forward in the darkest of times.
