Are you or anyone you know looking for a fun way to spend a weekend outdoors with the family?  If so, check out the 25th Annual Downtown Venice Craft Festival.  Some of the country’s best crafters will converge in Venice for this weekend to put on display some amazing works of art!  A few of our most popular attractions include booths where crafters will display their beautiful pieces of stained glass, multiple types of photography, and, of course, there will be booths for children.  Festival goers may walk around leisurely and enjoy some spectacular craft designs.

What to Expect:

People do not only have to look at the crafts; most items will be available for purchase. So, for those wanting to fill a space on the wall, there is surely going to be a piece just waiting for you! Worried about leaving your dog or dogs home during this fun-filled weekend? Don’t be. There is no need to leave the four leg family members home because the Craft Festival even has booths for dogs…so feel free to include the Whole Family! On top of having booths for artwork, the Craft Festival also features a Green Market. Here, festival-goers may walk around and find plants, homemade soaps, live orchids, and even homemade BBQ sauces.
