EDGEFest Kicks Off Summer with Fun Events

Get ready to kick off summer with a lineup of exciting events brought to you by the city of Edgewater!

It’s Summer Time Pool Party

The last day of school for our local students is Friday, June 2, 2023. What better way to celebrate the end of a unique and challenging school year than with a pool party? The EDGEfest It’s Summer Time Pool Party is just that and more. There will be music, vendors, an inflatable obstacle course, a hose down from Edgewater Fire Rescue, lots of pool time and some cool treats to eat.

All the fun takes place at the Southeast Volusia Family YMCA located at 148 West Turgot Avenue in Edgewater on Saturday, June 3, 2023 from 9:00 AM until 12:00 PM. Not a YMCA member? Not a problem at the It’s Summertime Pool Party. Any non-YMCA members will just need to sign a waiver and the swimming is on us – the City of Edgewater and the Southeast Volusia Family YMCA. All swimmers under 12 years of age will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

If your business, civic group, club or church is interested in getting involved as a vendor or hosting a game for our hardworking students, please call 424-2400 x7207 or email specialevents@cityofedgewater.org.
