Established artists, local crafters and about 4,000 rubber duckies will come together once again for the Venice-Nokomis Rotary Club’s 22nd Annual Fine Art and Craft Festival on Saturday, Jan. 18, and Sunday, Jan. 19, at the Venice Municipal Airport festival grounds.

The rotary club has been hard at work organizing a juried show of roughly 80 artists and crafters, entertainers, and children’s activities. Rotarian Joe Pokorney and his wife Judith McGinty are co-chairing the event this year. Although the pair has assisted with the festival over the past 10 years, this is their second year chairing the show.
