The East Cambridge Business Association is a membership based organization, founded in 2008, that represents 150 business (and growing) in the East Cambridge and Inman Square neighborhoods of Cambridge, MA.
Our membership spans small, local family-run establishments that have been operating in our community for close to 100 years, to global leaders in life sciences and technology sectors. At the ECBA we understand that a thriving business ecosystem relies on partnerships between large and small companies, the residents, emoloyees and other patrons who support them, and various cit departments. We work to nurture those connections.
If you are a resident or visitor, we appreciate you supporting local businesses. We invite you to search or Member Directory and take some time to explore our authentic commercial district filled with family owned businesses, bars, restaurants, retail, and the best Portuguese cuisine around.
For over a decade the ECBA has organized the annual Smoke This Rib Fest each fall. Live music, a beer garden, and over 20 restaurants competing for the "Best Ribs" and "People's Choice" award.
The ECBA has hosted outdoor movie nites in East Cambridge and Inman Square throughout the summer. Bring your lawn chairs, grab some popcorn, and watch a family-friendly flick with your neighbors.
The Freedom Run is a patriotic 5k race through the heart of East Cambridge & Inman Square. The race starts & finishes at CambridgeSide and is immediately followed by a festive roof deck party.
