This holiday weekend (September 3rd & 4th), American Craft Endeavors is proud to present the 3rd Annual Downtown Venice Labor Day Weekend Craft Festival in Venice, Florida.

Miami Avenue in Downtown Venice will once again be transformed into an outdoor craft showcase with the unique and original work of the country’s top crafters. 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.  In addition, an expansive Green Market will offer festivalgoers a variety of plants, flora, orchids and homemade soaps.

Admission is free and open to the public. Times are Saturday & Sunday 10am-5pm. The navigational address is: 220 Miami Ave W., Venice, FL 34285.

Here are a few of the fine crafters you will see this weekend:

Joseph Cram: Photography

The first fine crafter we would like to introduce to you is Joseph Cram. Joseph’s company, Florida Tropical Prints, originated out of his love for Florida’s beaches and its unique State Parks. He has always loved to run on the beaches and enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime sunrises and sunsets that only Florida can offer. He decided to capture these one-of-a-kind moments in time and pass them on to you! You can view more of his work HERE.

Tricia & Jeff Mangrum: Jewelry

Next, we would like to introduce to you the talented duo: Tricia & Jeff Mangrum. Tricia & Jeff hand-make an exquisite collection of elegant necklaces. Their necklaces are inspired by the sea and the beautiful Florida lifestyle. Each piece of jewelry is uniquely designed and never duplicated. You can view more of their jewelry HERE.

Joe Weinstein: Fountains

The final artist we are going to introduce to you today is Joe Weinstein. Joe tries to recapture the special moment in each fountain he creates. You may call it a moment of inspiration. The fountain pictured above has a few mosaic creatures embedded in the fountain. This is one of our favorites! You can see more of his beautiful work HERE.

You will be able to meet each artist mentioned above along with 100 other very talented fine crafters. We look forward to seeing YOU on this holiday weekend!

  1. Looking for a ceramic artist who would design and create a jar that looks like a green olive with a pimento removable top. Should be safe to contain a food product.
