03/06/2021 3:00pm 03/06/2021 10:00pm 20th Anniversary Downtown Venice Art Classic

Vibrant downtown Venice will transform into an art-lover’s Mecca during the Downtown Venice Art Classic. Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the festival is designed to create a festive art marketplace experience for both the collector and first-time buyer. Juried artists hailing from across the country will set up booths, gallery-style along West Venice Avenue on Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm. Residents and visitors are invited to stroll amidst life-size sculptures, spectacular paintings, one-of-a-kind jewels, photography, ceramics and more during the free, outdoor event. Located on Florida's west coast in Sarasota County, Venice is a town on the Gulf of Mexico, filled with historic charm, natural beauty, and independently owned shops and restaurants. Whether you like shopping in the unique stores of the downtown Venice Main Street district, or prefer golfing, boating, or other recreational activities, Venice has it all.

Safety measures in place for the socially-distanced, outdoor event:
Masks are mandatory inside the show site for everyone except children under the age of two. A face shield is an option for extra protection over your mandatory mask but the mask must be on underneath.
• Entrances and exits will be monitored for one-way traffic.
• Visitors should reserve free time slot on Eventbrite.
• Social distancing is required between artists and patrons, and patron groups.
• Patrons are asked to stay home if they have been diagnosed with COVID-19, awaiting test results for COVID-19, or show any symptoms of the virus.
