In summer 2019, Pax the Goat was inaugurated as Edgewater’s first Pet Mayor at EdgeFest! Six candidates campaigned over last summer and raised almost $20,000 for the Care For Real Pet Food Pantry.
The Edgewater Chamber of Commerce actively works with local businesses and community leaders within the neighborhood to enhance a pet’s (and their pet parent’s) lifestyle. You’ll find fun-filled activities throughout the year to help promote pet-friendly initiatives throughout our community.
Edgewater has a beautiful lakefront to walk your pet, a beach for your pet to play, free poop bags at three pet-friendly parks, a large fenced in dog park on Bryn Mawr and the lake, several pet-related businesses to help care for your pet, the most compassionate pet residents and now an annual Edgewater Pet Mayor Election!
The Edgewater Chamber’s summer festival, EdgeFest, has embraced the community’s pro-pet attitude and since 2017 has held an annual Pet Parade during its weekend to cheer on our two-legged and four-legged residents. Everyone is welcome to participate in scheduled activities throughout the two-day event.
