2020 Parade Update

2020 Parade Update

The status of the 2020 Venice Holiday Parade, traditionally held the Saturday after Thanksgiving downtown, has been on our minds as we reach the time when the planning begins in earnest. The City has made a difficult decision with regards to all on the many events normally held in Venice. 

On July 24, the City issued the following press release that was widely distributed among news and social media: Consistent with current CDC guidelines on large gatherings and social distancing, as a protective measure against the spread of COVID-19, the City of Venice is reinstating its moratorium on the issuance of special event permits on public property within the City. This restriction will remain in effect until further notice.

The 2020 Venice Holiday Parade is part of this decision and will therefore not occur this year.

We are hopeful the event will happen next year. We do thank you for your interest and participation in the past.
