A little Venice History!
The legendary Abbot Kinney introduced the world to Venice in 1905 on the 4th of July. Spanning across Windward Avenue at Pacific (then Trolley Way), 3-foot high letters spelling VENICE glowed to electric life!
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 photos of the the June 24, 2007 Venice Fest (the lighting of the restored Venice Sign for the first time.)
Today this lasting legacy is restored across Windward Avenue as a tribute to the celebrated Venice of years past and modern day gateway to the world famous Venice Beach.
LOCATION: 80 Windward Ave. Venice, CA 90291. Metered parking on Windward Ave. Parking lots on Windward Ave and Speedway. For more info, visit VeniceChamber.net
