Edinburg, TX—The City of Edinburg is hosting a special celebration to honor all residents and city employees for their contributions to securing the historic fourth All-America City title. This festive event will also highlight the dedicated delegation that was crucial in achieving this prestigious recognition. The celebration will take place in the City Hall Council Chambers on Thursday, June 27, at 6 p.m. Special proclamations will be made, including one by Doug Linkhart, President of the National Civic League, and lawmakers will be present to recognize Edinburg's incredible achievement.

The award was secured in Denver, Colorado, on June 9, 2024, at a conference hosted by the National Civic League. The All-America City Award, recognized as the nation's most prestigious civic honor, acknowledges communities that engage residents in innovative, inclusive, and effective efforts to tackle critical challenges and improve the quality of life for all. Edinburg is one of only ten communities nationwide that earned this title in 2024.

From June 7-9, finalist communities convened in Denver to present their community-driven initiatives to a jury of nationally recognized civic leaders. Edinburg’s diverse team included high school students, community leaders, members of the Capable Kids Foundation, and elected officials.

“Winning our fourth All-America City Award is a testament to the incredible spirit and dedication of our community,” said Mayor Ramiro Garza Jr. “This achievement reflects the hard work of our residents, who come together to make Edinburg a place where innovation, inclusivity, and resilience thrive. I want to congratulate every resident of Edinburg because this is truly a team effort. I am immensely proud of our delegation for their tireless efforts and commitment to bringing this honor home to Edinburg.”
