The 11th Annual Venice Craft Festival returns to this picturesque seaside town that has been affectionately called the Mediterranean Mayberry. Venice has been honored as a Florida Main Street City. Northern Italian architecture and beautifully landscaped boulevards create a scenic backdrop for this popular weekend craft show. Over 80 artists and crafters will transform West Venice Avenue into an outdoor art gallery featuring reasonably priced original arts and crafts. Just south of Sarasota along Florida’s white-sanded Gulf Coast, Venice offers 14 miles of beaches and a local population that truly embraces art and leisure.
