In accordance with City of Chicago regulations for large outdoor gatherings, the organization decided to hold off until next year, instead of rescheduling for a later date in the fall season. We looks forward to the day when music and diverse acts fill the Broadway street in Edgewater and the community can once again celebrate together. Over the past eight years the neighborhood event has become an important part of the northside festival season, showcasing many local and acclaimed acts, making it a must for those looking to truly experience summer in Chicago.
The committee is also seeking community insight to help build something amazing together for the 2021 schedule. Whether an idea is large or small, provide feedback online here.
Broadway from Thorndale to Ardmore
Saturday, August 5, 2020 from 12 – 10 p.m.
Sunday, August 6, 2020 from 12 – 9 p.m.
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.
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!

Note that Broadway will be closed off to street traffic from Thorndale to Ardmore starting Saturday, August 5 at 12:00am until Monday, August 6 at 6:00am.
