Community Events

It's pretty common for residents' social calendars to be filled throughout the year—especially since Edgewater's Parks & Recreation department does such an excellent job organizing events year-round for residents. During the spring and summer months, residents can expect to participate in Easter egg hunts, Arbor Day events, summer concerts, fourth of July fireworks celebrations, community picnics and movies in the park. The autumn and winter months promises Halloween festivals, tree lighting events, and harvest festivals.
