In six years, the Sarasota Chalk Festival has grown to be the biggest chalk festival in the world, with an estimated economic impact of $10 million to the city in 2013.

Members of Venice MainStreet, Venice Circus Arts Foundation, the Venice Farmer’s Market and the Venice Art Center (a partner of the city’s Cultural Campus) hope to bring the 2014 festival to Venice, making it more accessible to South County residents.
