AUGUST 3 & 4
EdgeFest is Edgewater's summer street festival on Broadway between Thorndale and Ardmore. Volunteering with us is a fun way to contribute the Edgewater Chamber of Commerce's biggest fundraising event.
OFFICIAL EDGEFEST NONPROFIT VOLUNTEERS
The Edgewater Chamber is donating 100% of the beer tips to six non-profit organizations who provide 10 volunteers to work the beer tent and/or chamber table. Here is the list of non-profits who are sharing the tips at EdgeFest this year: Families Together Cooperative Nursery School, Friends of Senn, About Face Theatre, Friends of Swift, Nothing Without a Company and Edgewater Reads. When you sign up, you will designate the non-profit organization you are working with and your t-shirt size.
UNAFFILIATED EDGEFEST VOLUNTEERS
If you would like to volunteer, but aren't affiliated with any of the six official local non-profits, you can still volunteer! Sign up, and select the non-profit you would like your portion of the tips to benefit.
If you would like to volunteer, please be aware that in addition to your scheduled shift, you are required to attend a volunteer orientation. We'll offer three orientations. The first one will be a Conference Call on Tuesday, August 30 at noon for anyone not able to make an in-person orientation. The second orientation will be on Wednesday, July 31 at noon at Broadway Armory located at 5917 N Broadway. The second orientation will be held Thursday, August 1 at 7 pm at Herb Restaurant located at 5424 N Broadway.
NOTE: All volunteers representing your organization have to attend the orientation and show up for their shift for the non-profit organization to receive a donation.
The beer tent volunteers serve beer and must be 21+ or older. The Chamber tent representative will answer questions, hand out information and sell various Chamber merchandise. The Pet Parade volunteers will help along the parade route. The EdgeLab/Pet Lounge volunteers will assist presernters with demos in the Pet Lounge.
When you arrive at EdgeFest for your shift, you will check in at the Chamber Table at your scheduled time.
