A Longstanding Tradition

The Edgewood Fair made its debut on May 3, 1967 in the Hall of Flowers in Golden Gate Park. It began as a garden festival for the Auxiliary to sell home-grown plants and handmade jams to benefit children with mental illness. Since then, the Edgewood Auxiliary has grown the Edgewood Fair into a two-day annual charity extravaganza that has raised more than $9 million to help the thousands of Bay Area children, youth, and families Edgewood serves each year.
