Edgewater Community Festival and Picnic Coming Aug. 25

This year Edgewater Collective is partnering with the City of Edgewater to plan an awesome community event to spotlight everything that our great city has to offer! We are excited to create an event that showcases Edgewater businesses and organizations, spotlights our local schools and provides fun for the whole family! The day will begin with the Edgewater 5k at 9 a.m. and the festival will start at 3 p.m. at Citizen’s Park.

Proceeds from the event benefit our local schools (Edgewater Elementary, Lumberg Elementary, Molholm Elementary and Jefferson Junior/Senior High School). Specifically, we are raising funds for classroom book libraries for kindergarten through third grade at the elementary schools and books for the library at Jefferson.
