International Women’s Day Edgewater Crawl

Thank you to everyone who participated and attended!

Photos from this year’s event may be found HERE.  

On March 8th we celebrated women-owned and/or operated businesses and organizations in Edgewater on International Women’s Day with food tastings, drink samples and live pop up activations along the crawl’s route. This year, we walked along Broadway and Granville to tour women-owned businesses, chat with inspiring small business owners, and savor the neighborhood’s unique flavors. This international movement supports great causes and helps the business community attain #EachforEqual. 

Your Attendance Contributed to a Stronger Female Future

This year, a portion of ticket sales benefits Loom Chicago, a local nonprofit that supports women with refugee status to create beautiful hand-made fiber crafts such as knitwear, crochet, accessories, jewelry, apparel and home decor.

Loom Chicago is a fiber arts social enterprise with Catholic Charities Refugee Resettlement Program. They offer studio space, materials and workshops to women within the Chicago refugee community who knit, crochet, weave and sew to create beautiful handmade products that are for sale. Learn more about Loom’s program and mission.
