Updates for December 2021

It looks like egg hunts will be returning in 2021! Unfortunately MANY are waiting until literally the last minute to publish their plans and details. We're updating their information daily as it comes in.  Those we KNOW are having an event in 2021 are highlighted in yellow, like this passage to make them easy to find as you scroll down the page.

If you have missed the Easter egg hunts in your area (or they were canceled), see this page about how to easily have your own backyard or local park Easter egg hunt.

RELATED: You may also want to go to a local farm to Pick Your Own fruit and vegetables; strawberries start very soon in most areas! Farms will be open, and it's quite safe out in a field, where people are not close to each othger!
And if you are looking for local children's consignment sales, also often held by churches in the Spring and Fall, click here!

ALWAYS click the links to check date and time with the event's own website, as there are often last minute cancellations, postponements or changes to locations due to weather (like heavy rains) or logistical problems, just click on the link to the event's website and (in most cases), you want to click on the "events" link or "calendar" link on their website. Or use their site search for "Easter". Do let them know you found them here, so they will update us next year. Since many egg hunts do not publish the current year's dates until the very last minute, or simply never respond to email, we may not get their current information, which is why we have links to their websites, Facebook pages and calendars. Besides egg hunts, there are also Easter breakfasts and brunches and Easter parades to watch!
