19th Annual Shark’s Tooth Festival – April 8-10, 2011. Did you know that Venice, Florida, is the “Shark’s Tooth Capital of the World?” Every spring, families and fossil collectors travel to our beautiful, white sand beaches to hunt for shark’s teeth and enjoy one of the country’s most unique festivals. Hosted by the Special Athlete Boosters of Venice, the Shark’s Tooth Festival features the works of more than 100 artists, live entertainment, fossil vendors, educational booths and fantastic food. Children can explore the Mote Marine hands-on exhibit and play games such as the Shark’s Tooth Scramble. All festival proceeds benefit Special Olympics of Sarasota County. Festival hours are Friday from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Saturday and 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday.
