ABOUT:  Spanning across Windward Avenue at Pacific, the VENICE Sign in lights is a modern day replica of the one originally installed in 1905 by Venice’s founder Abbot Kinney.  It is a defining symbol of Venice, past and present.   In 2007, the Venice Sign Restoration Project recreated and installed the contemporary version of this historic sign. Since that time the Venice Chamber has been responsible for the sign and for protecting its trademark. View photos of the the June 24, 2007 Venice Fest (the lighting of the restored Venice Sign for the first time.)
LOCATION:  80 Windward Ave.  Venice, CA 90291.    Metered parking on Windward Ave.  Parking lots on Windward Ave and  Speedway.
