Do you Foo? There’s nothing quite like Pensacola, Florida in the Fall and if it’s Fall that means it’s time for Foo Foo Fest!

The highly-anticipated arts and culture festival, one of the largest in the South, spans an impressive 12 days and has blossomed into a “don’t miss” event for both tourists and locals alike. Pensacola will host the 6th Annual Foo Foo Festival from October 31 to November 11, 2019. This year’s Foo Foo Fest line up runs the gamut from internationally-acclaimed classical piano virtuoso Garrick Ohlsson, renowned jazz band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Multi-Grammy nominated musician Marsha Ambrosius to “Skulptures” (a display of 3D printable skateable concrete structures) and a performance of The Savannah Sipping Society (a new play by The Golden Girls writers). Strategically positioned around and during some of Pensacola’s most popular events, the 12-day Foo Foo Fest straddles some of the area’s longstanding and favorite happenings including the 47th Annual Great Gulf Coast Arts Festival, the Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show, Pensacola Eggfest and the 35th Annual Frank Brown International Songwriters’ Festival.
