WHO IS GEDP?
The short answer is this: The Greater Easton Development Partnership (GEDP) believes in and loves our city.
Since Easton was chosen in 1776 as one of only three cities where the Declaration of Independence was read aloud, it has become a place where the spirit of independence flourishes - a magnet for entrepreneurs, free thinkers, and artists.
Now a beautiful, riverside city of approximately 28,000 residents, Easton provides a wealth of opportunities, festivals and events for residents and visitors with unmistakable small-town charm.
Our small but mighty team works passionately every day to make Easton a better place for its residents, businesses and visitors through our many programs
You’ll find us setting up tents in the early mornings at Easton Farmers’ Market, America’s oldest, continuous, open-air market. You’ll see us as red-shirted Easton Ambassadors, ready with a friendly hello, offering directions and keeping Downtown Easton clean — even on snowy or sweltering hot days. Our Easton Main Street Initiative and West Ward Community Initiative programs focus on economic revitalization and supporting small businesses through programs and events.
You’ll find us coordinating events like PA Bacon Fest, Heritage Day, and more, which attract thousands of visitors to Easton. And you’ll also find us spearheading the Easton Murals Project, Easton Out Loud, Easton Garden Works, Easton Compost Program, and so much more.
Easton is where we live, work and spend our weekends. We are deeply committed to enriching Easton and trumpeting all it has to offer.
Our goal is to Support Easton. But we can’t do it alone. A 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, GEDP relies on support from our community partners like you. And we need you now more than ever. Join us today and find out how you can #supporteaston.
