On behalf of the Village of Edgerton I extend our warmest welcome and invite you to spend some time exploring our community. When driving into Edgerton from the north, it’s a stunning view of the Village from the top of the hill! It’s a quaint little place hidden away in the sand hills just a south of highway #14 and I am very proud to call it my home.

If you’re looking for a place to visit, an affordable place to live or build a business, Edgerton would be a great choice! In Edgerton you know your neighbors, you know the business owners and employees by name and within a short time of living here you feel the embrace of the community and a true sense of belonging.

We have lots offer in our community without having to travel to a larger centre. There are lots of options for recreation, several active organizations and our business community offers a wide variety of goods and services. Check out the Business Directory on our website along with what recreation we have to offer.

We kicked off summer with our 5th Annual BBQ in early June with a huge number of both urban and rural residents in attendance. In August we hosted our 1st Annual Block Party! We had a chili cookoff, a bonfire for hotdogs and marshmallows along with lots of activities for the children. While the 35-degree heat kept some people at home, those who attended thoroughly enjoyed the event! Now, with school back in session, the turning of the leaves, combines rolling down the fields and the cooler evenings, the smell of fall is in the air. We have hopes for a long pleasant fall, well past Halloween!

Council would like to acknowledge the hard work by our Public Works Department this summer. They moved close to 100 trees this spring, so watering was a full-time job for our summer students. They cleared some trees, did some mowing and erected all the signs for the new Walking Trail which is being thoroughly enjoyed by many residents. Bill and his team do a great job at keeping the all the village property looking so well kept.
We are proud to say that many of our current, and former residents firmly believe in the Homecoming motto: “Always Home!”
