South County Events Calendar

Our Events Calendar is a partial list of events in Venice, North Port, West Villages, Nokomis, Englewood, Boca Grande, and the surrounding area. Revisit our calendar regularly for updates and new listings. Many of the postings are linked to the event website where you can learn more. We do not make assumptions about the date of future events even if they occur every year. Official updates and requests for new event postings are welcome by Randy Moore at

Our Events Calendar is followed by a list of seasonal events and a list of some of the local organizations that provide regular classes focused on health, wellness and fitness.
