Venice, Florida  December 22, 2008  – The Downtown Venice Craft Festival celebrates its 2nd anniversary on January 24 – 25, 2009, as Main Avenue in downtown Venice is transformed into an outdoor craft art showcase complete with 150 crafters with affordable original works available for sale. Admission is free and open to the public.

In order to ensure a superior event with quality affordable original crafts, all of the local and national crafters have been hand-selected from hundreds of applicants by American Craft Endeavors, producers of the top outdoor craft festivals in the country.

From folk art, pottery, handmade jewelry and paintings, to personalized gifts, handmade clothing, scented soaps and body products, a full spectrum of craft art mediums will be on display and for sale with prices ranging from as little as $3 to $3,000.

All of the crafters will be at the festival with their work, giving visitors the opportunity to talk with the crafters, learn about their art and what inspires them, and of course purchase original pieces.
