Updates for July 2024

Easter egg hunts are back! We've started updating the info for this year. Unfortunately MOST wait until the last minute (often just a week before) to publish their dates, times and details. We're updating their information daily as it comes in. We expect pages to be up to date by mid-March.

  1. When we CONFIRM an event for 2024, the date will be highlighted in pink, like this passage to make them easy to find as you scroll down the page.
  2. Hunts that were held in the past year or 2 but not yet confirmed for this year are in orange.
  3. The ones NOT in either orange or pink are more dubious - held in the past but not confirmed in the past few years, so just our best guess! These you must call or email to confirm before you go.

RELATED:

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 Since many egg hunts do not publish the current year's dates until the very last minute, or simply never respond to email, we may not get their current information, which is why we have links to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!

It’s time for the annual Mad River Valley Easter Egg Hunt. The egg hunt will start promptly at 10:00 a.m. Please note that this year, the event will be held at the Nad Rive Park.. The egg hunt will start promptly at 10:00 a.m. Refreshments will be served under the pavilion starting at 9:30 a.m. The egg hunt is open to children of all ages and is free of charge. The change in venue this year is a result of current parking constraints due to material deliveries at Waitsfield and Champlain Valley Telecom (WCVT) where the event has been historically held. According to Eric Haskin, President and CEO of WCVT, “The Egg Hunt usually draws about 200 people and without ample parking, we felt it would be safer to host at another venue. We are very excited to be partnering with the Mad River Valley Recreation District to hold this event this year and thankful for the use of their fields.” We look forward to seeing everyone at this year’s event. A reminder of the important Mad River Park rules for attendees: no dogs, pack-in-pack-out all trash, parking in the parking lot only or in designated areas per parking attendants at events.
