Why Edgewater Needs a Community Festival

If you have lived in Edgewater more than ten years, you remember Edgewater Days. Edgewater Days was a well known, multi-day festival that celebrated the Edgewater community complete with a parade and many other different events. It began in the 1960s and ran through the mid-2000s. In 1987, Westword ranked Edgewater Days as the “Best Big-city, Small Town Festival.”

We believe it is time to bring back a community festival that showcases the great businesses, history, schools, organizations and other community assets in Edgewater. The Edgewater Community Festival will be held Friday, May 12 through Sunday morning, May 14, 2017 and many of the activities will take place in Citizen’s Park.

Join us as we work to connect our thriving community with our schools!
