    The East Town Association was officially incorporated in 1983, although it began in the early 1960’s.

    The first Bastille Days took place July 17 & 18 in 1982 and we celebrate the 30th anniversary in 2011. 

    East Town Market celebrates 15 years in 2011 and over 80 vendors participate annually.

    Jazz in the Park started in 1991, 21 years later we have over 8,000 weekly attendees.

    The Storm the Bastille started in 1985.  Today, over 5000 runners and walkers participate.

    November through May, check out the East Town Market at Discovery World on the 2nd Saturdays from 10am to 2pm. 

    The first Bastille Days was located on Jefferson Street directly in front of George Watts & Son, today Bastille Days has four stages and occupies eight city blocks.

    Beginning in 2009, we no longer allow guests to carry in their own alcoholic beverages to any of our events, including Jazz in the Park. Support these free events and buy a glass of wine!

    Over 200 businesses and 100 individuals are members of the East Town Association, see why!

    Did you know you can get your knives sharpened at the East Town Market?
