New Sweet Stroll event in Easton is a Dessert Lover’s Dream Come True!

EASTON, PA – On Friday, February  23, individuals can embark on a confectionary adventure with Easton’s new Sweet Stroll event, which combines the buzz of a pub crawl with the sweetness of local bakeries.

Serving as a post Valentine’s Day treat, the scrumptious promotion offers exclusive samples and bites from 10 of the city’s  favorite sweet shops. Attendees can stroll through a downtown ‘dessert’ adventure featuring cookies, pastries, cupcakes, pies, muffins, candy, chocolates, artisan breads, and more.


• Date & Time: Friday, February 23, from noon – 7 p.m.

• Location: Downtown Easton (Starting point at Easton Public Market)

• Ticketing:  $20 Tickets, closing on February 20.

Participating Businesses

  • The Modern Crumb
  • Chocodiem
  • Fox Bakery
  • The Modern Bakery
  • Sweet Girlz
  • Caramelcorn Shop
  • Bank Street Creamery
  • Mia and Maddie’s
  • Cake and Corolla
  • Pie and Tart
  • Dutchess Cookies

Sweet Surprises Await: 

The Sweet Stroll will include a variety of treats where participants can follow the trail with their ‘Golden Ticket Passport.” Every bakery stop earns strollers a  punch of their passport, entering them automatically into a raffle for a chance to win a prize.

Participants will receive their passports and a ‘Bakery Box’ at the Easton Public Market to begin their stroll. Whisking through each stop with a bite from the participating vendors, those can package their goodies for later indulgence in their bakery box.

And as icing on the cake, the Service Electric Community Room at the Easton Public Market will host various activities, including baking-related demos, and even a cupcake decorating station.

“I envisioned the Sweet Stroll event to highlight Easton as an extraordinary dessert and baked pastries destination. Nowhere else in the Lehigh Valley can you amble through a 2-block area, savoring in the sugary delights of handmade macarons, custom chocolates, decadent cake tacos, and authentic French croissants, and then conclude the experience with Australian-style meat hand pies,” shares Kathryn Gaffney of The Modern Crumb and event co-organizer.

In the event of heavy snow, a snow day alternative will be scheduled. Prepare to turn this winter day into a #DessertDestination on social media while celebrating the sweet side of life, and of Easton!
