Why should I give $5 at the entrance, and where does that money go?
Edison Park Fest is the primary fundraiser for the non-profit Edison Park Chamber of Commerce, its own small entity, not affiliated with larger groups such as the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce. Your donation also supports the work of the Edison Park Chamber of Commerce, who work to keep Edison Park a vibrant and sustainable community filled with strong independent businesses.
In addition to helping cover the enormous costs of producing such a large festival, pretty much everything else that you enjoy about Edison Park all year long – the events such as Restaurant Week, Santa Express, Movies in the Park, Irish Sunday Funday, beautification projects, parking lots owned by the Edison Park Chamber of Commerce, the unique, local small businesses – is supported in part or in whole by Edison Park.
We are asking for a $5 suggested donation for entry into the festival (kids under 12 and seniors over 65 are free) on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Donors will receive a stamp and will be inundated with THANK YOU'S!!!

You call this a neighborhood fest? Years ago only the local neighborhood restaurants were featured. This fest has gotten out of hand trying to be a carnival atmosphere not a neighborhood fest.
Suggested mandatory donation of $5? Not worth it. If I wanted carnival food I would go to a carnival.  Either retire the fest or bring it back to the home town feeling featuring local restaurants only like Park Ridge.

You have scheduled food trucks this year. Might have been wiser to do a food truck fest!

Yo, Pete. You gotta calm down, man. There’s only one food truck here right now. Also, is $5 really gonna break the bank for you? This is for the neighborhood. Is that not good enough for you?
