Throughout the afternoon, ribbon cuttings will be hosted at Copper Fox Distillery, Second Street Bistro, The Velvet Shoestring, Shorty’s Diner, Williamsburg Floral, Column 15, Casa Pearl, Parkway Printshop, and The Virginia Beer Company. A detailed route will be shared online.
Established in 2019 as an “Eatertainment” district, The Edge exists at the convergence of York and James City counties, and the City of Williamsburg.
“Our goal is to highlight the vision of The Edge and its lasting impact on our local economy,” Terry Banez, CEO of the Greater Williamsburg Business Council said in a released statement. “In collaborating with our three localities, we encourage the entire community to come out in support of local businesses.”
To celebrate the occasion, The Virginia Beer Company will be releasing an exclusive beer, aptly named “Hi-Diddly-Ho, Neighborino!” The Imperial Sour Ale has blackberry, mango, milk sugar, and vanilla flavors.
RWS is hosted by the Business Council in partnership with the economic development offices of these three localities, according to a news release from the Greater Williamsburg Business Council. There is no cost to attend the afternoon of ribbon cuttings.
The community is invited to attend the afternoon of festivities, celebrating the growth of The Edge District.
Following RWS, members of the Business Council are invited to join Business Council members at The Virginia Beer Company for a Business After Hours event. Tickets are available for $15 and members of the Business Council may purchase tickets for the Business After Hours online.
Doors open for networking at 5 p.m. and tickets include one beer and small bites to eat. Additional pours are 20% off, and more food will be available to purchase from NOSH Modern Mobile Bistro.
