There are four special events during which the City of Easton shuts down Centre Square. On these days, the trolley has a special route. Those events include:
Heritage Day – July
Garlic Fest – October
Bacon Fest – November
Peace Candle Lighting – November
On these festival days, the trolley will service the Easton neighborhoods as follows:
Stop 1 – College Hill – Wawa
Stop 2 – West Ward – Noto’s Deli
Stop 3 – Downtown – 5th and Northampton Streets (this is your access point for the festival)
Stop 4 – Southside – Easton Market, 250 Line Street
The Baconfest and Garlic Fest trolley will operate Saturday and Sunday and will start at the College Hill Wawa at 9 a.m. Although the trolley will attempt to reach each stop every 30-45 minutes throughout the day, please note there may be delays due to changing traffic patterns so please be patient. The trolley will make its last pickup at 5th and Northampton Streets at 7 pm.
