|Nothing says Spring like a floral crown (see images below for completed examples)|
But here is a list of some of the feste and sagre that I've attended in recent years with approximate dates for when they typically run and links to posts I've written on each:
Festa di Sant' Antonio at church of San Francesco della Vigna: June 8 through15, 2013
Festa di San Giovanni in Bragora: 3rd week of June (for about a week)
Festa di San Piero de Casteo (aka S Pietro di Castello): last week of June (about a week)
Festa del Redentore: the famous city-wide festa and most important of them all, but now handled by an official private marketing arm: July 20 & 21, 2013.
Sagra di Santa Marta: last week of July (the 1st in this working-class area of Venice took place last year)
Sagra di San Giacomo dell' Orio: end of July (for about a week)
And here are some more images from this year's Festa di Primavera of the Asilo Pan di Zenzero, which will occur again next year in early to mid-May in the garden of the ex-Ospedale Umberto I at the northwestern edge of Cannaregio.

|Just 5 euros would buy you a ticket for a ride in a real gondola with a real gondolier (the father of one of the school's students)|
|There were no shortage of hand-made items to buy, including some ducks & geese made of felt by my wife Jen|
|There was a bread-making workshop for kids and...|
