Venice Florida Corvettes

Venice Florida Corvettes

VFC got its start in October 2002, when seven couples came together at the home of John Vidas, club founder, for an organizational meeting. The first president was Peter Campisi. Growth was rapid and within two years, our group of seven had grown to 125 family memberships. We have continued to grow and currently have over 224 memberships with more than 288 Corvettes.

We are an active club that believes Corvettes need to be driven. The club's goal is to offer a minimum of two car related events per month in addition to our meeting. Typically, one event is a club designated car show being held in the area (or the state) and one social event that provides an opportunity for a Corvette road trip, dining and fun. Some past events have included sporting events, theater, historic destinations of interest and just a good road cruise with dinner … you get the idea.

Are you interested in a longer over the road trip? Ten Corvettes caravanned to the 50th anniversary in Bowling Green. In 2014, 24 Corvettes participated in our caravan to the National Corvette Museum for its 20th anniversary in August.

VFC has been fortunate to have enthusiastic sponsors who have contributed to our success. Bill Buck Chevrolet in Venice was our first club sponsor and continues to support us today.  Our first club car show, "Corvettes in Venice,  A Vette-Together" was held at their dealership in January 2003. Subsequent shows have been held in Centennial Park in downtown Venice. In 2013, Norma Jean’s Family Bar and Grill joined our support network and provides trophies for our show.  With the backing of our sponsors and the dedicated members of our club, we are proud to say that Corvettes in Venice, A Vette-Together, has been called one of the best shows in Florida. Details on the annual show, can be found under the CAR SHOW tab on the website.  Plan to visit Venice, the "Shark's Tooth Capitol of the World" on March 13, 2016 and join us for our 12th annual show, as a participant, spectator or new member. Maybe you will go home with a shark’s tooth trophy and show shirt.
