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
