Venice Sharks Tooth Festival

Venice, FL in Sarasota County has been named the "Shark's Tooth Capital of the World" because of the millions of shark teeth that wash up on our sandy white beaches. Each year the Shark's Tooth Festival highlights fossil collectors from across the southeast who display and sell shark's teeth and other prehistoric fossils, and more than 100 artists offer their original work. Join us for a fun event with an awesome lineup of music and delicious food, from seafood to BBQ – all supporting Special Olympics Florida - Sarasota County. Special Olympics Florida provides year-round sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Through the power of sports, our athletes discover new strengths and abilities, skills and success, and find joy, confidence and fulfillment -- on the playing field and in life. They also inspire people in their communities and elsewhere to open their hearts to a wider world of human talents and potential.
