Holiday Mixer


Get Your Holidays On at the Edge

We celebrated 2019 surrounded by our community friends, small businesses and neighbors with great bites and booze and wrapped up the year with a bang. 

Whether you wanted to network, make new connections, help raise money for your Chamber’s programs and events, meet new Edgewater residents or hang out with old acquaintances, the Holiday Mixer was the perfect event to wind down and relax before 2020 kicked in.

Fundraising on the Edge

The Edgewater Chamber of Commerce depends on generous donations from its community to raise funds towards yearly events like programming workshops, small business growth panels, entrepreneur-centric networking gatherings and brand new events like FitPop Edgewater. The Holiday Mixer raised over $14,000 this year to help the Chamber’s 2020 programs.

We love our sponsors and want to show you off at our event. If you want Edgewater’s residents to get to learn more about your business, sponsor the Holiday Mixer and get extra perks for supporting your community.

I ❤️ Edgewater Cocktail Contest

We might be biased but we LOVE Edgewater’s community and we know our small businesses do too! So much so, that we are once again throwing down a friendly cocktail competition during our Holiday Mixer to show off all the mixology talent in Edgewater’s bar scene. 

Local bartenders served a cocktail that showed us what they love about Edgewater. The winner was determined by the attending guests!

And the result was…

YOCT Edgewater People’s Choice Award

The Edgewater Chamber has joined Choose Chicago’s Year of Chicago Theatre (YOCT) campaign in celebration of our amazing Edgewater | Andersonville Theatre District with our very own YOCT Pledge and the YOCT Edgewater People’s Choice Award. The chamber will announce the winner of the YOCT Edgewater People’s Choice Award during our Holiday Mixer and look forward to raising our glasses to all of the wonderful six nominees.

Can I attend in 2020?

This event is open to the general public – whether you’re a Chamber member or not. The Edgewater Holiday Mixer is for anyone interested in great parties, socializing,  and networking with Edgewater’s small business owners. All are welcomed: foodies, families, new neighbors and old friends joined us and saw how great it is to live on The Edge!
