Emmaus Main Street Partners

The Borough of Emmaus is ideally situated between Route I-78/309, the Pennsylvania Turnpike, PA Route 29, and many major local roadways.  Our central location provides easy, fast access to major markets and many amenities.  Our thoughtful planning has provided a walk-able community with easy access to businesses, churches, parks, and schools.  If car is your preferred means of travel, Emmaus has ample free parking for business patrons.  Park and walk to the diverse and unique types of  businesses located within our Borough.  Emmaus is also home to East Penn School District, consistently rated as one of the top school districts in the region.

The Emmaus Main Street Partners (EMSP) was officially incorporated in 1995 as a non-profit program to support and revitalize the Emmaus historic downtown.  Funding was provided by the State Department of Community and Economic Development with initial matching funds provided by the Borough of Emmaus upon its inception.  Since that time, the Emmaus Main Street Partners have become a proud partner of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce. 

The Emmaus Main Street Partners strive to improve the quality of life and the economic vitality of a vibrant and active Emmaus community through collaborative efforts among business owners, residents, volunteers, and other partners.

Our Emmaus Main Street Board of Directors relies on a handful of committees to accomplish action items to better our community.  Some of those committees include:

  • Membership
  • Ad Hoc Events (Golf, Old Fashioned Christmas, Farewell to Summer, etc.)
