The City of Venice’s special event permit moratorium was reinstated on July 24, 2020. According to the City of Venice, “Consistent with current CDC guidelines on large gatherings and social distancing, as a protective measure against the spread of coronavirus, the City of Venice is reinstating its moratorium on the issuance of special event permits on public property within the City. This restriction will remain in effect until further notice.” Therefore, all of Venice MainStreet’s signature downtown events requiring permits are canceled until the moratorium ends.
