The Venice Sign will be the ” O’Venice Sign” starting Monday, March 13, 2017!  


A little Venice Sign History! Spanning across Windward Avenue at Pacific, the VENICE Sign in lights is a modern day replica of the one originally installed in 1905 by the legendary Abbot Kinney.  It is a defining symbol of Venice, past and present.  In 2007, the Venice Sign Restoration Project recreated and installed the contemporary version of this historic sign. Since that time the Venice Chamber has been responsible for the sign and for protecting its trademark.  View pics of the Venice Sign below!


LOCATION:  80 Windward Ave.  Venice, CA 90291.    Metered parking on Windward Ave.  Parking lots on Windward Ave and  Speedway.


Thing to do for St. Patrick’s Day is to snap a selfie with the O’Venice Sign and #VeniceSign #VeniceBeach #VeniceBeachFun.

Then get your party on with some green drinks at James’ BeachBarlo Kitchen and Cocktails, High Rooftop Lounge,  Sidewalk  Cafe, Canal Club, The Dudley Market,  Hama Sushi, Sunny Spot,  Cabo Cantina, Simmzy’s, or Tony P’s Dockside Grill.   View full list of St. Patrick’s Day events here!
