Venice Sign – Adopt A Bulb

Adopt-a-Bulb and Become a Part of the Legacy

The legendary Abbot Kinney introduced the world to Venice in 1905 on the 4th of July. Spanning across Windward Avenue at Pacific (then Trolley Way), 3-foot high letters spelling VENICE glowed to electric life!

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.

Today this lasting legacy is restored across Windward Avenue as a tribute to the celebrated Venice of years past and modern day gateway to the world famous Venice Beach.

Adopt-a-bulb and your name will be added to the VENICE SIGN PLAQUE. Or honor your favorite Venice tradition, organization, business or person.

All bulbs are currently adopted.
