While Nazareth may be small in size with a span of only 1.7 miles, it proves to be mighty at heart! This quaint yet dedicated and determined town founded in 1740, turns 275 years old this month, and is packed full with history. Please join Nazareth as we celebrate our 275th birthday together. The Borough will host a year-long celebration honoring the 275th anniversary of its founding.

When one thinks of Nazareth, PA usually immediately the name Mario Andretti or Martin Guitar comes to mind. They are family to us here in Nazareth and we treasure them both for their commitment to quality and excellence. We also cherish our Moravian heritage and you need only ask a local resident about our rich Nazareth history and you will get at least 3 snippets proudly recited to you. Ask for the waitress Lori at the Nazareth Diner and she will share some amazing historic facts with you!  Its “that” kind of town with solid old fashioned roots even to this day.

So let’s Celebrate! We invite you to go to Nazarethnow.org for a full list of exciting community events to celebrate this wonderful town, including a night at the Iron Pigs Game where our Mayor Carl Strye will throw the first pitch and the Nazareth students will sing the national anthem. You will definitely want to get a seat on our Historical Trolley Tour and cheer at our birthday parade!

You may also visit http://nazareth275.deco-apparel.com to purchase limited edition Nazareth 275th memorabilia. Part of the proceeds will benefit Nazareth and its continued revitalization.

As always, please go to NAZARETH NOW. ORG for all the events and exciting updates in Nazareth!
