The Festival offers a wonderful variety of events geared to delight and entertain every age group. Most events take place within waterfront parks, Round Lake Harbor and Lake Charlevoix.
Have you ever noticed what is missing at the Venetian Festival?
It isn't live entertainment. Throughout Venetian Week, bands in East Park will be jumping with a wide variety of music.
It isn't kids' activities. The Venetian Games include kids and teens in soccer, basketball, running, sailing, golf and tennis tournaments. Teens are provided their own music venue at the "Battle of the Bands." Kid's Day at Lake Michigan Beach also provides a slew of low and no cost children's entertainment.
It isn't spectator opportunities. The street parade and the boat parade have entertained spectators for decades, and the Ultimate Air Dogs will dazzle Festival goers with their canine leaping prowess.
It certainly won't be fireworks that are missing, considering the festival features two nights of world class fireworks displays.
What's missing is admission prices. All of the big events and entertainment offered at the Venetian Festival are absolutely free to the public.
