Foo Foo Festival Guidelines and Application:

The 8th Edition of the Foo Foo Festival has been announced for November 3 – 14, 2022.

Click Here to watch the In-Person & Virtual Kickoff Announcement for the 8th Edition of Foo Foo Fest that was held, Feb. 7, 2022. 

Foo Foo Festival programming should showcase the cultural and arts community — appealing to locals while attracting regional and national visitors as well. As part of the Foo Foo Festival budget, ACE will provide individual organizations with operational funding for the event.

In order to qualify, an organization must be a local non-profit, their proposed event must occur during the determined two-week period of the Foo Foo Festival (Nov. 3-14, 2022), and the event must fall under the arts/culture category including, but not limited to, visual and performing arts, culinary avenues, and cultural arts.

*IMPORTANT* Letter of Intent (New for 2022)

Beginning in 2022, the Foo Foo Festival committee is asking all interested organizations to submit an official Letter of Intent (LOI) prior to submitting their grant application. This is an effort to help ensure those interested in becoming grant recipients are indeed eligible prior to submission of their full application.

For additional information on the grant application process, please e-mail curator@acepensacola.org
