Grab a mask and join the fun in historic downtown Venice on Thursday, October 22nd from 5-7pm to enjoy a classic evening on the avenues. Hosted by Venice MainStreet and its business partners, several stores will remain open for abundant shopping and restaurants for dining, while you take a stroll and listen to music and view classic cars.

This shopping promotion is in celebration of small local businesses and their contribution to the community during the global crisis. Come down and show your support for their efforts by shopping for the holidays, buying gift cards, and dining al fresco. Enjoy a little bit of the good old days in Venice with talented musicians’ tunes floating through the air. 

The Antique Automobile Club of America Venice Region chapter is showing their support for the downtown businesses by having their “Classin’ up the Joint” meet-up and parking classic cars throughout the avenues. Grab your cameras and phones and get some great pictures of beautiful cars in the most picturesque setting.

Classic Evenings on the Avenues is free and open to the public. Masks are required downtown (for specific mask ordinance info CLICK HERE). Please respect social distancing and don’t forget to wash your hands. For more information contact Venice MainStreet at 941-484-6722.
