Every 3rd Friday, Downtown Ephrata's shops offer something special, just to celebrate the fact that it's Friday! Each month offers something different, including entertainment, refreshments, and special sales. Hook up with friends, enjoy a latte, chill will the sounds of an acoustic guitar, or just SHOP.
Located near the heart of Pennsylvania's Amish country, just 60 miles west of Philadelphia and 14 miles north of Lancaster, Ephrata is close enough to be accessible to the cities many shopping and cultural centers, airports and rail stations, yet far enough to maintain its homey, small-town flavor.
With open arms and a friendly smile, we invite you to visit our town, stroll our streets, and discover Ephrata.
