ACE President, David Bear sat down with the Pensacola News Journal in a recent interview and explained where Foo Foo got its unique name and about the upcoming events. Bear said, “”A Foo Foo was an impromptu musical group aboard 19th century shipping vessels, “ he went on to say, “So, Foo Foo has historical significance, maritime significance and arts and cultural significance… The name is whimsical and sticky — you won’t forget it. “

This is the first ever Pensacola Foo Foo Festival presented by ACE; according to Bear, “We not only want to celebrate what we have in the community but also showcase it.” Over the span of 12 days, Nov. 6-17, visitors will get a unique glimpse into the thriving arts, culture and entertainment present in Pensacola, Fla. with any of the more than 30 Foo Foo events.
