Backyard Front Yard: 2014 Windy City Coop Tour

Curious about urban chicken keeping?

This is your chance to take a peak at the wide variety of chicken coops and breeds in the Chicago area at the 5th Annual Windy City Coop Tour on September 20 – 21 from 10 AM to 2 PM each day. It looks like there are a few of our Edgewater neighbors on the route.

City Made Fest

If you missed out on the inaugural City Made Fest last year, time to mark your calendars. This was easily Edgewater’s best little underground block party featuring local businesses, brewers and artists from all across Chicago — right in our town center.

It looks like our A-ville friends & neighbors have lined up a great group of local Chicago bands this year. See you in town!
