Our Purpose

The festival is a fundraiser for the 501(c)3 nonprofit Greater Easton Development Partnership. Visitors are asked to contribute a $5 suggested donation at the entrance gates to benefit the following GEDP programs: Easton Public Market, Easton Farmers’ Market, Easton Main Street Initiative, Easton Garden Works, the Easton Ambassadors, West Ward Community Initiative, Easton Compost Program and more! Funds raised through PA Bacon Fest support free events and programming in Easton throughout the year, including; Easton Out Loud, Live at the Falls concerts and many others.

Our History

PA Bacon Fest grew out of a special event hosted by Easton Farmers’ Market — America’s oldest, continuous open-air market, established in 1752. Food vendors who source locally and incorporate organic, all-natural, artisan and pasture-raised products will be given top vending priority in our farm-to-table area.
