Get ready for a diverse music line-up at the fifth annual Edge Fest. With fest favorite 16 Candles taking the stage Sunday night, other bands such as Rod Tuffcurls, Suburban Cowboys and Trippin Billiesn will keep the music flowing during the event.

Edge Fest is this weekend, Saturday and Sunday August 6-7. The fest hours will be on Saturday, August 6 from 12 p.m. – 10 p.m. and Sunday, August 7 from 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. and will be taking over Broadway between Thorndale and Ardmore.

Other featured performances will include local acts such as Chicago Spirit Brigade andJoel Hall Youth Dance. This year will also include many of your favorite venders and restaurants.

Your $5 suggested donation at the fest’s entrances will get you an Edge Card which entitles you to discounts at community businesses. The event is a fundraiser for the Edgewater Chamber of Commerce, a local non-profit whose mission is to ‘support a thriving business environment, contributing to a vibrant Edgewater community.’ All proceeds that are collected at the gate and through beer sales go to pay for the event itself. Profits will go directly to the Chamber who will invest the money back into the community.
