What is EdgeFest?
EdgeFest serves as a community summer block party and fundraiser for the Edgewater Chamber of Commerce. We are a non-profit organization whose mission is to support a thriving business environment, contributing to a vibrant Edgewater community. This year, EdgeFest is all about the Music, Whiskers, Brews & Treats!
When attendees make the $5 suggested donation at the gate, they receive the Edge Card community discount card.
Gate donations and beer sales go toward paying for the production costs of the festival, and any profit is invested back into our organization, thus back into the community. The Edgewater Chamber is all about giving back so our beer tips are donated to six local non-profit organizations whose volunteers work the beer tents. All your tips go directly to our partner non-profits, so tip generously!
