First Saturday: Back to the Books

Event Details

Aug 03

Our First Saturday events celebrate the Ephrata community throughout the downtown area all Summer long.

Back to the Books 2:30-4:30 p.m. Downtown Ephrata

With the first day of school right around the corner, it’s time for Back to the Books! All of Main Street turns into a book! Our businesses feature pages from great books that families can read by going from shop to shop. All kids receive school supplies at each stop and a copy of the featured book at the end of the route.

Join us at 16 E. Main Street for a unique experience that brings together the local community for a FREE fun event where friends, family, and neighbors have the opportunity to gather in a festive atmosphere while enjoying the live music (dancing too!), local food vendors, and adult beverages. Local retail vendors offer a personal shopping experience for all attendees. Visit for a detailed list of vendors and entertainment.
