December’s Holiday Events kick-off the first Saturday after Thanksgiving in Downtown Venice with lighted floats and lively entertainers.

Festivities continue with the annual Christmas Boat Parade at dusk on the first Saturday in December. Lighted boats cruise along the Intracoastal aterway, from the Albee Road Bridge to Circus Bridge. This is one of the largest in the country, with 145+ units in the parade and ending with Santa in his sleigh. Half of the Venice winter population are in the parade and the other half are watching it. A Must See!

On the third weekend in January the annual Rotary Arts and Crafts Festival is held at the Venice Florida Municipal Airport. The Italian Feast and Carnival is also held on the airport grounds during the third weekend in February.

The Venice Florida Symphony begins its season in December and has concerts on the first Friday of the month through April. Venice Theatre productions run from October through May.

In March, Venice MainStreet holds its Downtown Art Classic the first weekend followed by the Annual Toast to Venice, a Wine Beer and Food Festival. The Saturday before Easter is the annual Eggstravaganza egg hunt for children.

April brings the long awaited Sharks Tooth Festival on the second weekend. Music under the stars played by the Venice Symphony takes place at State College of Florida in early May.

The Fourth of July is celebrated with spectacular fireworks from the Venice jetty and can be seen from most Beaches in the area.

September offers a Jazz Fest at the end of the month.

Sun Fiesta is the official start of what native Venetians refer to as "Season". Its bed races, parade, crafts fair and music provide family entertainment during the third weekend of October.
