Sharks ToothThe City of Venice 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. The Sharks Tooth Festival takes place each Spring against the back drop of Venice’s best shark tooth hunting beach, where fossil collectors from around the Southeast display and sell sharks teeth and other prehistoric fossils. More than 100 artists from around the State market their original work.

Sharks Tooth FestivalThe festival will be held at the Venice Airport Festival Grounds on April 10-12th this year. Food vendors will serve up delicious dishes from seafood to BBQ. Live entertainment is on stage throughout the Festival. Children are entertained with such events as the Sharks Tooth Scramble and Mote Marine’s hands on exhibit. All proceeds of the festival benefit Special Olympics Florida-Sarasota County.
