At noon on July 8, 1776, Easton was one of only three places where the Declaration of Independence was first read publicly. Ever since that monumental event, Easton has embraced the principles of freedom as a city where pioneering thoughts and diverse beliefs are welcome, where unique individuals can bring their dreams to life in word and action.


We celebrate both the original spirit of independence and its enduring legacy with HERITAGE DAY
a free, full-day family festival.
HERITAGE DAY showcases local history with reenactment events, activities for kids, musical performances, and an amazing firework display over the Forks of the Delaware.
